No, thanks! I'm quite happy standing! / Virginia Ironside.

By: Ironside, Virginia.
Publisher: London : Quercus, 2016Description: 346 p. ; 22 cm.Subject(s): English fiction -- 21st century | Humorous fictionDDC classification: 823.92 Summary: Marie is a year older, but there are no signs of her slowing down - she has a new lodger (into conspiracy theories), an intractable iPhone to wrestle with, and a trip to India to plan! As usual the year brings its ups and downs, Marie is burgled, which sends the street into uproar. Ex-husband David is still around and getting rather too close for comfort. Marie's cat Pouncer is starting to look rather peaky (her conspiracy-theorist lodger suspects poison), and worse still, it seems Gene is getting too old to want to hang out with his groovy granny any more. Maybe learning to paint graffiti and speak street slang will help win him back? Full of Virginia Ironside's inimitable wit, this is a hilarious and touching look at getting older from one of Britian's sharpest observers of modern life.
