Melissa Steel's characters are looking for love, but they're willing to settle. They don't dare to feel flat-out greed or lust or hate. Instead they wander around, repeating the mantra "everything is okay." It isn't.

These brutally funny stories provide valuable advice on destroying friendships, flirting with your marriage counsellor, cheating at Diplomacy, dumping your boyfriend via Call Waiting, and enrolling your children in the right elementary school programme.

Steele spoons up bitter medicine for modern life and burns away the veneer of everyday politeness.
