The Wendy House
by Imogen Edwards-Jones
Charlie is back from five years photographing in the hotspots of the world, but things seem to have changed at home. Successful and single, she is shocked to find her feisty girl adventures are not in great demand - everyone seems to prefer talking about marriage, maternity and marinades.
Charlie is back. Back after five years photographing in the hotspots of the world from the flooded plains of Mozambique to the victims of the Rwandan genocide. Successful and single, she is shocked to find her feisty girl adventures are not topics for conversation at dinner tables where the merits of marriage, maternity and the latest marinade dominate. Her sister Kate is now a young married with two small children, one large au pair, a stainless steel balloon whisk and an interior designed house with New Labour Pistachio walls. Kate is also in therapy - retail therapy. And she is determined Charlie should follow suit. When Charlie meets fellow photographer Andrew Edwards, a man with a government health warning tattooed to his forehead, it looks like independence isn't all it's cracked up to be. But who is really missing out? What is a modern girl to do these days? Who is she supposed to be? And can real domestic happiness only be played out in a wendy house?
