The Woman Who Went to Bed for a Year

Sue Townsend


The day her children leave home, Eva climbs into bed and stays there.

Shes had enough - of her kids carelessness, her husbands thoughtlessness and of the worlds general indifference.

Brian cant believe his wife is doing this. Who is going to make dinner? Taking it badly, he rings Evas mother - but shes busy having her hair done. So he rings his mother - she isnt surprised. Eva, she says, is probably drunk. Let her sleep it off.

But Eva wont budge.

She makes new friends - Mark the window cleaner and Alexander, a very sexy handyman. She discovers Brians been having an affair. And Eva realizes to her horror that everyone has been taking her for granted - including herself.

Though Evas refusal to behave like a dutiful wife and mother soon upsets everyone from medical authorities to her neighbours she insists on staying in bed. And from this odd but comforting place she begins to see both the world and herself very, very differently. . .

The Woman Who Went to Bed for a Year is a funny and touching novel about what happens when someone refuses to be the person everyone expects them to be. Sue Townsend, Britains funniest writer for over three decades, has written a brilliant novel that hilariously deconstructs modern family life.
