Temp by Serena Mackesy
Book DescriptionWe all know how it works: first you go to School, then you go to University, and then you enter Real Life. And that's the important bit. Real Life is about achievement, recognition, choices. It's about a boss who trusts you, a wardrobe that suits you, friends who support you and a relationship that fulfills you. It's a mobile phone, an expense account, a company car and a place to park it. Happily Ever After. Unfortunately, Real Life isn't working that way for The Temp. She's managed the university bit, but the job, the dough and the happily-ever-after seem harder than anybody ever told her. Living in Stockwell while she moves through a series of jobs ranging from the horrifying mindless to the bemusingly witless to the simply extraordinary, she realises that something isn't right. Who cares about a boss who trusts you? She'd settle for a boss who knows her name. This can't be Real Life, can it? Building on the success of her "Independent" column, Serena Mackesy has created a wonderfully witty, acerbic expose of office anthropology and a genuinely moving story about the early-twenties doldrums.

You wouldn't take on a cleaner without checking out their references. What possessed you to do it with a husband? When Mel falls in love with Rufus, she has no idea what she's letting herself in for. But it is only when their azure Mediterranean courtship is transported to the green fields of England that Melody's doubts set in.
Virtue, Paperback (October 2000)» View all books by Serena Mackesy
Anna and Harriet share a burden: hellishly saintly mothers. So when they meet, initial loathing turns swiftly to recognition and firm friendship. They set out to paint the town red. And for a while life goes swimmingly. But when they tread on one toe too many, they find that they have only their worst instincts - and each other - to rely on.
