When Delia Bennet - author and domestic advice columnist - is diagnosed with cancer, she knows it's time to get her house in order.

"One of my favourite books ever!"
Inspired by her heroine, Isabella Beeton, Delia has made a living writing a series of hugely successful modern household guides, as well as an acerbic domestic advice column. As the book opens, she is not yet 40, but has only a short time to live. She is preoccupied with how to prepare herself and her family for death, from writing exhaustive lists to teaching her young daughters how to make a perfect cup of tea.
