by Anna Maxted
Running in Heels by Anna Maxted (2001)
Anna Maxted's trademark mix of laugh-out-loud funny and poignancy works its magic once again in her moving, warm and truthful second novel.'To say that Babs has been my closest friend for sixteen years is rather like saying that Sinatra enjoyed a sing-song or that Einstein was good at sums. Compared to us, Siamese twins might be defined as "reasonably close".'But now Babs, gorgeous, noisy, funny Babs, is getting married. And Natalie, Senior Press Officer for the London Ballet, is worried. What happens when your best friend pledges eternal love to someone else?Natalie's always tried hard to please everyone - too hard, Babs would say. Now her good-girl veneer cracks and she begins an affair which spirals her out of control. Only then does she come face to face with the truth staring at her from the mirror. Not to mention Bab's marriage difficulties, her new boyfriend Chris's ambition, her brother Tony's dark secret, her mother Sheila's cooking , and inviting Babs's brother Andy - slippers and all - to be her lodger.....
