Sausages, Motherhood and Other London Tales

Sausages, Motherhood and Other London Tales

'We can’t all be like Cinderella. Some of us just can’t get to the ball so we end up scrubbing pots and pans in the kitchen with the coachman.'

A short collection of London based stories that zoom in on the lives and psyches of different women, all desperately trying to stay afloat in the midst of adversity. we see them revolt in their own ways against the dissatisfaction that has become a feature of their lives.

A beleaguered teacher turns to her suddenly unaffectionate husband’s email inbox for clues. Elsewhere a lonely, uncelebrated woman makes the painful journey to visit her fading mother in a care home. We see a young mother who grew up in care agree to lunch with her estranged alcoholic mother, triggering old conflicts whilst a fallen sausage at lunch makes a new mother confront her postnatal depression. The stories offer a slice of insight into the issues of loneliness, marital issues, social isolation, depression and alcoholism from the perspectives of six women.
