just dessert
Just Dessert, Dear. Tafelberg, 2010

Clara Brand is burning for revenge.  Her husband has left her and their three children for a younger, sexier (and of course also skinnier) friend - the kind of girl who can't even boil an egg.  Clara, a food writer and gourmet, wants to serve them a cold, cold dish.

In correspondence spanning a decade, the story unfolds of a woman who manages to cope, in spite of everything.  Just Dessert, Dear is a clever, sophisticated, modern version of the traditional epistolary novel, with e-mails and text messages playing a crucial role in the thickening of the plot.  It is deliciously frank and funny, wise and witty, written with the author's acclaimed insight and verve.
