Clara Hutt (known to herself as Jabba the) is a ripe size 16 with a secret liking for kitten heels and see-through organza tops. She is 33 with a husband and two small boys, but some days she wakes up with the sneaky feeling that her life isn’t all it should be. Her 6-year-old thinks he has nits; all the other mothers at the school gate are perfectly groomed but Clara is in pyjama bottoms. Clara, like millions of other women, is going through the motions of responsible adulthood, and only clinging on by the skin of her teeth. And just why is her husband so perpetually mysterious?
