I Don’t Know How She Does It

I Don’t Know How She Does It

Allison Pearson

Meet Kate Reddy, consumate juggler: motherhood, career, marriage, she spends her life keeping these various balls in the air while trying not to tear her hair out. A searingly poignant and yet classically funny novel, Allison Pearson’s debut evaluates the notion of ‘having it all’ for the modern woman whose life is the embodiment of ‘a comedy of failure and a tragedy of success.’


“Pearson writes with gratifying elegance and endearing self-mockery” —New York Times

“Funny, fast and full of nail-on-the-head observations” —Daily Telegraph
