Description - Woman of a Certain Rage by Georgie Hall

Eliza is angry. Very angry, and very, very hot. A new novel about the menopause from Georgie Hall.

'Made me laugh and flinch in equal measure' Sophie Kinsella

A smart and funny novel about love, life and a second shot at freedom for rebellious women of a certain age.

Eliza is angry. Very angry, and very, very hot.

Late for work and dodging traffic, she's still reeling from the latest row with husband Paddy. Twenty-something years ago, their eyes met over the class divide in oh-so-cool Britpop London, but while Paddy now seems content filling his downtime with canal boats and cricket, Eliza craves the freedom and excitement of her youth. Fifty sounds dangerously close to pensionable: her woke children want to cancel her, a male motorist has just called her a 'mad old bat' and to cap it all her hormones are on the run. Who knew menopause was puberty's evil older sister?

But then a moment of heroism draws an unexpected admirer, and Eliza sets out to discover whether the second half of life can be a glass half full after all. She might suffer mental fog and night sweats - and have temporarily mislaid her waist - but this is her renaissance.

Woman of a Certain Rage is a smart and funny novel for all women who won't be told it's too late to shake things up.

'Warm, wise and laugh-out-loud witty, Eliza and her unexpected midlife resurgence are simply magnificent. Bridget Jones on HRT (and bigger pants). I absolutely loved it' Lucy Dillon
