No! I Don't Need Reading Glasses
Marie Sharp 2
By Virginia Ironside
Grumpy old women meet Bridget Jones in the continuing story of Marie Sharp, first met in the bestseller 'No! I Don't Want to Join a Bookclub' - perfect for fans of Jenny Eclair and Sue Townsend
Marie may be 'getting on a bit' but it's certainly not getting her down.
Her family around her and a man who loves her means that life is good - but nothing stays the same for long.
Marie's golden years are filled with as much drama - love, laughter and tears - as ever. Which just goes to show that getting on a bit does not mean giving up - or even growing up.
Virginia Ironside is a journalist, agony aunt and author, and the creator of the one-woman show Growing Old Disgracefully. She lives in West London and has one son and two grandsons.
