‘Tales of the city to make you shake, weep, and giggle out loud. I’m already looking forward to the next one. ‘-Patricia Duncker The quirky residents of Madrigal Close are back as Anna and Cass prepare to celebrate their baby, Florrie’s, christening. Andy, Florrie’s gay father, is dating his old flame Tony, but Tony has other plans. But it’s not just Anna and Cass’ family that is falling apart. Amanda Boulter’s witty series says profound truths about relationships and families today. It’s a long hot summer and Gordon is nose down with his face in the grass, completely naked. The idea of coming away with a group of other men to find their animal, sensitive selves never appealed to him in the first place, and the sight of other men around him now in no way convinces him he was wrong. If only Pearl hadn’t left him. . . Pearl is now living above the Cosmic Cafe in Balham where business is booming and designer T-shirts, body pierced animal rights activists and vegans mix easily. But what exactly does she get up to in her bedroom with the man in the long red leather coat, high heels and fishnets? Andy’s trying to concentrate on his tan whilst hanging out with Anna and Cass and their baby Florrie. Neighbour-from-hell Ida has discovered that Andy is Florrie’s father but none of them give a damn about what nosy neighbours think. Andy’s got other things on his mind, like Tony. . . Things liven up even more when Acorn, the now famous eco-poet, turns up. . . Amanda Boulter’s acutely perceptive, hilarious saga shows London life as it really is lived in Balham.
