Belinda wistfully reflects how much better at sex she is now than when she was in her twenties. She's thought about taking a lover but ultimately could never do that to her husband Tom. So imagine her despair when she discovers he's having an affair... And what about Tom, and his love Meg? It's not easy for them either. Alongside this knot of middle-aged lovers is a tangle of younger ones, as Belinda's flirty daughter Chloe tries to set up Jack with shy Alice, without realizing that Jack actually has a crush on her.
Nicholson casts an unflinching eye on men's attitude to sex, on women, love, and family life. This is our own familiar world rendered pacy, funny, emotionally on the button, and hugely entertaining. II
