Why Mummy Drinks

Gill Sims

Why Mummy Drinks is the brilliant novel from Gill Sims, the author of the online
sensation Peter and Jane. It is Mummy’s 39th birthday. She is staring down the barrel of a future of people
asking if she wants to come to their advanced yoga classes, and polite book clubs where everyone claims to be tiddly after a glass of Pinot Grigio and says things like ‘Oooh gosh, are you having another glass?’.

But Mummy does not want to go quietly into that good night of women with sensible haircuts who ‘live for their children’ and stand in the playground trying to trump each other with their offspring’s extracurricular activities and achievements, and boasting about their latest holidays.

Instead, she clutches a large glass of wine, muttering ‘FML’ over and over again. Until she remembers the gem of an idea she’s had…

A Sunday Times Bestseller.

“I read this book to my mum when she was unwell. It had us both laughing out loud repeatedly and
I would definitely recommend it!”
