'Men sleep with girls who wear black knickers, then marry girls who sport white. And you don't want him to marry you, do you?' asked Jess, fixing me with a stare. I didn't dare admit that leaving Jamie hadn't put me off marriage - if anything it had made me even more determined to get my next marriage and underwear combo right...And so begins "Daisy Dooley Does Divorce" - the hilarious and often heartbreakingly honest account of a late thirty-something's life after divorce. For Daisy - the alter ego of bestselling author, journalist and columnist Anna Pasternak - her divorce is a blessing in disguise and, like Bridget Jones before her, she is now looking for true love. From the euphoria of escaping from her brief and disasterous marriage through failed love affairs, to a passionate fling with a younger man via the flirtatious clutches of her best friend's husband, Daisy's diary of the highs and lows of life as a divorcee is an irresistible take on dating and makes for compulsive reading.
A regular contributor to national newspapers, particularly the Daily Mail and Sunday Times Style, Anna Pasternak is the bestselling author of Princess In Love. The hugely popular 'Daisy Dooley Does Divorce' column has been published in the Daily Mail every week for two and a half years.
