Julie Trinker has just discovered her career as The Daily Post's Stain Guru is over. And she suspects the rest of her previously predictable life is in deep trouble too - including her marriage. What she can't anticipate is the disastrous way she'll become entangled with the charming Art Storey.
Art has his own problems: a studio full of unfinished sculptures, an empty bank account, a brother in a coma, and an ex-wife whose long, unforgettable legs keep walking back into his life. He's desperate enough to involve Julie in a deception that can only end in tears.
Moya Sayer-Jones's 'Love Rat' is a funny, touching novel about adultery, betrayal and self-improvement. It reminds us that comedy depends on misery and misunderstanding - as surely as life depends on love.
