    How to Fake Being Tidy
    And other things my mother never taught me
    A glorious account of how the little things of life are, of course, the big things' - <i>Richard Glover</i><br/><br/>'Every failed domestic goddess will rock with laughter.' <i>- Shona Martyn </i><br/><br/><i>My mother wasn't much of a housekeeper. She wasn't much of a cook either, although she tried. She longed to live a more unconventional life. Admirably high-minded, but it meant I never learnt to fold a towel.</i> <br/><br/>In these funny, sometimes poignant, stories, award-winning feature writer Fenella Souter celebrates the highs and lows of domestic life - from her attempts to run the house like a grown-up, to lessons in good cooking; from accidentally killing her wisteria, divorcing the cat and shirt-fronting bossy tradies, to wondering if the 'hostess gift' is still a thing or why some people have impeccable taste. <br/><br/>With their distinctive wit, they will leave you smiling with recognition at the everyday dramas and dilemmas that can make or break friendships and marriages, turn a house into a home, or let chaos get the upper hand.<br/><br/>'Chuck out all your self-help guides to gratitude, mindfulness and finding meaning. This book is all you need.' - <i>Charlotte Wood</i><br/><br/>'Sweet, wise and very funny.' - <i>Danny Katz</i>
