Buchbeschreibung zu „The Generation Game“

'Very powerful writing. Sophie draws her reader in immediately and combines wit and poignancy to very powerful effect... Excellent.' --Katie Fforde

'This is a beautifully written book… The characters are quite simply brilliant.' --Vanity Case Books

'An extraordinary story...A born storyteller with a gift for characterisation, she writes with warmth, lovely earthy detail and a pathos which keeps a lump lodged in the throat...echoes of Victoria Wood.' --The Daily Mail

'a brave, bold, warm, rich, amusing, engaging novel' --Hello! Magazine

Philippa Smith is in her forties and has a beautiful newborn baby girl. She also has no husband, and nowhere to turn. So she turns to the only place she knows: the beginning.

Retracing her life, she confronts the daily obstacles that shaped her very existence. From the tragic events of her childhood abandonment, to the astonishing accomplishments of those close to her, Philippa learns of the sacrifices others chose to make, and the outcome of buried secrets.

Philippa discovers a celebration of life, love, and the Golden era of television. A reflection of everyday people, in not so everyday situations.
