The book ‘I don’t know how she does it’ has just been re-released to tie in with the film of the same name starring Sarah Jessica Parker.
Written by Allison Pearson, it tells the story of working mum Kate Reddy, who juggles work, the nanny and her relationships whilst trying to do her best as a mother. I especially loved the opening scene where she distresses mince pies so she can pass them off as her own for the school carol concert. “Women used to have time to make mince pies and had to fake orgasms. Now we can manage the orgasms, but we have to fake the mince pies. And they call this progress.”
The film tie-in edition was published by Vintage on 1st September, price £7.99 in paperback. The film opened in the UK on the 16th September.
I have one copy of the book to giveaway to a lucky reader of baby kearney.
