Publisher's Summary

Meet Cloe Zhivago, 43 and definitely not counting. Married for what feels like all eternity to Greg, who tests his memory by hiding the kettle from himself in the drum of the washing machine, Chloe is a successful psychotherapist with two children and a Famous Friend from hell. She's got it all. So why does she want to rub her life out and start again? "Is this it?" she asks herself. "Will I never sleep with another man again?"

When Chloe meets temptation in the shape of Ivan, does she dare risk a passionate Russian romance before gravity wins the battle with her face and figure? Can she get away with one glorious, final fling? Dr Zhivago didn't. And just look what happened to Anna Karenina.

What the Critics Say

"Mrs Zhivago is like a script for the perfect comedy drama. And, reading between the jokes and comic situations, there's a real message about what keeps a marriage alive." (First)
"Olivia Lichtenstein's first novel is full to bursting with good things....[Her] writing is succinct, witty and often funny enough to make you hoot unbecomingly on public transport....[an] accomplished, enjoyable and surprisingly moral fable." (Independent on Sunday)

    "Not a fan"

    I didn't enjoy this audiobook and in fact did not bother listening to the end of it. The narration was fine but the characters were so unlikeable and the story was dull.
