*Kathy Lette's funniest and most hard hitting novel will have you in stitches - but not at the plastic surgeon's hand* Lizzie, 39, has a successful career as a TV news anchorperson, a handsome husband and two small children. Her life seems pretty marvellous - until she realises she is about to hit the dreaded 4-0. Unlike her sister, Tish, looks never mattered that much to Lizzie, but then husband Hugo falls for the outstandingly bodacious Minxy Amore, Texan model and perfect Playboy material and she loses her job to a more attractive journalist. Then Minxy Amore and her husband, Sven, persuade Hugo to use his skills as a doctor in a new clinic that specialises in plastic surgery and body refits, perpetuating the myth that looks are the only thing that count. Is Lizzie the only one to disagree, and is the only way to get her husband back to go under the knife herself?
