Having A Lovely Time Summary

Having A Lovely Time by Jenny Eclair

Meet the Dobsons and the Jamiesons: two ordinary families on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Joe Dobson left his wife and kids when his young girlfriend Nina discovered she was pregnant. Now he feels like a cliche and Nina feels like a drudge, swapping her wild nights out with friends for mild nights in wiping baby sick off the carpet. So when Joe announces that he's booked a week's luxury holiday in Italy, Nina is thrilled - until she realises Joe's kids Saul (11) and Tabitha (13) are coming along for the ride. Meanwhile Guy Jamieson is sure this will be his last family holiday; he plans to leave his wife Alice on his return. Guy is a high- powered advertising director, and Alice - with her elasticated skirts, inedible mince suppers and unshaven legs - just doesn't fit his image. But Alice has a secret plan of her own: to have another baby...Funny, smart and refreshingly honest, HAVING A LOVELY TIME is all about infidelity, jealousy, resentment, recriminations and, just occasionally, love.

Having A Lovely Time Reviews

CAMBERWELL BEAUTY 'A fine first novel ... this comedienne has always been a novelist in waiting ... Eclair's modern cautionary tale has the same bittersweet wit that shapes her stand-up set' - Guardian 'Jenny Eclair writes as she speaks - irreverent observations are thrown down gauntlet-like as she rages on to the next gag' - The Times
