‘...cutting and clever, and yet so very romantic, as though PG Wodehouse had satirised life in the suburbs.’ -Liane Moriarty
Toni Jordan is a writer of that wonderful thing - clever chicklit. Her latest novel is an old-fashioned farce, a comedy of errors, missteps and dodgy decisions, and features her trademark emotional intelligence, wit and storytelling prowess.
Our Tiny, Useless Hearts sees Janice holding things together for her nieces as their father runs off to Noosa with their teacher Martha. Their mother Caroline is close behind, but then next-door neighbour arrives (through the window) for a tryst with Caroline, only to find Janice in her bed; he is in turn followed closely behind by wife, Lesley, and we arrive in screwball comedy territory. When Alec, Janice’s ex appears, hold it together she can no longer.
Along the way, themes of infertility, loyalty and the relevance of microbiology to the everyday are explored. Toni will be in conversation with Muse's own Nikki Anderson for this very special Mother's Day event.
