Scottish Girls About Town
Genre: Short story
Description: Scottish girls with attitude! Scandalous, scathing - and scorchingly good: Scottish Girls About Town is a scintillating collection of stories from some of Scotland's best-loved women writers, who have joined forces with up-and-coming new stars in aid of a very good cause. A high-powered businesswoman metes a devastating revenge on her cheating husband. A bored housewife contacts an old schoolfriend - with unexpected results. Two flabby flatmates race each other in a hilarious weight-loss contest. And a night at the Edinburgh Fringe goes disastrously wrong for Jenny Colgan's hapless heroine. All this and much, much more in a fabulous collection of brand-new stories which proves - if proof were needed - that Scottish girls are not to be messed with. £1 from every copy sold will be divided between Barnardo's, the UK's largest children's charity, and the Scottish charity, Women Onto Work.
