Baby talk among London’s female elite

The Egg Race, by Polly Williams, Sphere, €15.

3rd February, 2007

The Egg Race, by Polly Williams, Sphere, €15.

Polly Williams’ last novel, The Rise and Fall of a Yummy Mummy, was widely praised because it was witty and because it debunked lots of the sillier myths we are fed about the glamour of parenting.

The Egg Race returns the action to more familiar territory for popular women���s fiction; that is, the time before the parenting action gets a chance to take place.
