Fly in the Ointment | [Anne Fine]

Fly in the Ointment

When, like her cold and indifferent husband, Lois' old life vanishes into thin air, she can't help snatching at the opportunity to come alive. There's only one fly in the ointment: Janie Gay, the feckless and spiteful mother of her wayward son's child. But as Lois takes her second - and redeeming - chance at love, she finds herself on a collision course with a society that claims to support and protect. Suddenly it seems that all those years of nurturing her own deep-frozen heart may not have been so wasted after all.

What the Critics Say

"So savage and sharp in its insights that it cuts; a brilliantly compulsive, forensic dissection of a relationship built on ironies and evasions." (Sunday Times)
"As wicked and dangerous as ever, Anne Fine is on sparkling form." (Sunday Times)
