Product Description
A story weaved around the art world, about the breakdown of a nine year relationship, the process a woman has to endure to find what she lost in all those years, the value we put on the physical and the emotional and rediscovering what really matters. And, above all, it is about revenge.

From the back cover:

We were together until one Friday night in March, the Friday when he told me he couldn't see me any more.

I couldn't even say how or why or what. He said it so normal and reasonable and downbeat that I just sat and stared at him, and - before I could shout or cry or call him names, he left the flat with a bag under his arm and said that he would send round for the rest on his stuff. And that was the end of Fred and me: after nine years, he walked out on the door with a bag in his hand.

Depriving Iris of her job as well as her partner, Fred's departure paralyses her. Then, plunging back into a world where she is forced to re-evaluate the physical, the emotional, and what really matters, she rediscovers life. And art. And friendship. And even revenge.

This was much better than your average chick lit romp. The writing was good, the story engaging and the characters interesting with their combination of flaws and likeability. I particularly enjoyed the discussions about art and the London setting, as having lived there myself, I recognised most of the locations and could really see them in my mind's eye. Recommended!
