Chalcot Crescent by Fay Weldon
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


It's 2013 and eighty-year-old Frances is listening to the debt collectors pounding on the front door of No. 3, Chalcot Crescent. While she waits for the bailiffs to give up and leave, Frances writes. She writes about the boyfriends she borrowed and the husband she stole from Fay. She writes about the Shock, the Crunch, the Crisis and the Bite, about NUG the National Unity Government, about ration books and National Meat Loaf (suitable for vegetarians). She writes about family secrets. The problem is that fact and fiction are blurring in Frances's mind. Are faceless assassins trying to kill her young daughter? Are her grandchildren really plotting a terrorist coup upstairs? What on earth can NUG have against vegetarians? And just what makes National Meat Loaf so tasty?
