About this book:

In this award-winning novel, Finuala Dowling explores the fleeting and often so complicated moments of happiness in any household. Margot is a late-night talk radio host – the perfect job for an outspoken insomniac. Her home in Kalk Bay is crowded with wonderfully evocative characters such as her teenage daughter, Pia, and the three men in their lives. Finally there’s her mother, Zoe, once the acclaimed author of a quirky self-help volume with the same title, but now increasingly senile.
