Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons Summary


Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons by Lorna Landvik

Sometimes life is like a bad waiter - it serves you exactly what you don't want. The women of Freesia Court have come together at life's table, fully convinced that there is nothing that good coffee, delectable desserts and a strong shoulder can't fix. Laughter is the glue that holds them together - the foundation of a book group they call AHEB (Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons) - an unofficial club that becomes a lifeline. The five women each have a story to tell. There's Faith, the newcomer, a housewife and mother who harbours a terrible secret; big, beautiful Audrey, the resident sex queen who knows that with good posture and attitude you can get away with anything; Merit, the shy doctor's wife with the face of an angel and the private hell of an abusive husband; Kari, a wise woman with a wonderful laugh who knows that the greatest gifts appear after life's fiercest storms; and finally, Slip, activist and adventurer, a tiny spitfire who looks trouble straight in the eye and challenges it to arm wrestle. Holding on through forty eventful years - through the swinging Sixties, the turbulent Seventies, the anything-goes Eighties, the nothing's-impossible Nineties, to the present day - they take the plunge into the chaos that inevitably comes to those with the temerity to stay alive and kicking.

Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons Reviews


"This book deserves to be read on the strength of its title alone. Spanning 40 years, from the swinging 60s up to the 90s, this is a big-hearted slice of life that's forever teetering between tears and laughter" -- MAIL ON SUNDAY
"A love for books and a zest for life bring together five women in a lively story as delectable as a five-pound box of chocolates" -- ANNE LECLAIRE
"From the title onwards, this has DIVINE SECRETS OF THE YA-YA SISTERHOOD written all over it. It works" -- MIRROR
