Northern girl Harriet lives and works on a London estate which is a battleground between the white working class plus the immigrants versus the newly arrived middle class focaccia-eaters.

Unhappy and overweight, she hires a personal trainer who lures her into joining the martial arts class he runs. There she learns the regime of the completely phoney martial arts 'master' and embarks on a spiritual and literal journey which leads her to a hotel opposite the railway station at Crewe, the 'Weeping Women Hotel'.

This is Alexei Sayle's best work to date - good plot, great characters plus his trademark anarchic black humour.

Very interesting story with bit of humour, bit of irony, and it was also a bit weird!

Read but not sure if understood :) The book was completely different from what I expected. I somehow admired some things about Harriet but... And there were funny things, but - was that enough?
