“Darkly voyeuristic but with heart – as funny as it is painful and true. We loved it”
The debut novel from Matt Farquharson and Anna Whitehouse.
Lo and Dylan are living parallel lives, worlds apart.
Lo is the ultimate middle-class mother, all perfectly polished Instagram posts and armchair activism.
Dylan is just about surviving on a zero-hours telemarketing job from her flat, trying to keep food on the table.
But when they meet at the school gates, they are catapulted into each other’s homes and lives – with devastating consequences…
Explosive, sharply humorous and unflinchingly honest, Underbelly slices through the filtered surface of modern women’s lives to expose the dark truth beneath.
Where’s My Happy Ending?
‘‘As entertaining as it is instructive . . . funny and touching’
Anna Whitehouse and Matt Farquharson set out to discover what it takes to make it to forever, by asking our greatest questions about love.
They ask a former sex-worker and her ex-gigolo husband, celibate monks and free-loving hippies. They ask people who never wanted kids and people who have loads of them. They speak to couples, throuples and singles; gay, straight and anywhere in-between.
Join them on a searingly honest, belly-laugh inducing journey through love and relationships, social media and small children, expert advice and everyday exasperation, as they navigate the muddy waters of modern romance.
Parenting the Sh*t out of life
‘Hilarious … a must-read’
A book that will not help you grow or raise a human successfully, but that might, if you’re not too emotionally battered and can see past the permanent eye twitch, help you laugh a little more than you cry.
