Maggie Owen lives in London and has given up her job to stay home with her infant and toddler; her husband (well, they aren't exactly married) is a busy advertising executive. Trying to resign herself to a life filled with playground mums, soiled clothing, and a partner who comes home in time to kiss the kids goodnight when he's not away on some business trip, she suddenly runs into Claire, a former classmate whose confidence, looks, and sex life throw Maggie's own confidence, looks, and sex life-and the chaos her life has become-for a loop. Having It and Eating Itis a hip, in-the-know social commentary on contemporary life, and at the same time a hilarious, entertaining read. For any woman who has small children, any woman who had small children and is relieved to now have somewhat larger ones, or anyone who has ever contemplated marriage and children, it is the book to read, reread, and then pass along.
