Sorting Out Billy (2004)
Billy is a lad. He’s a laugh, he’s loud, he behaves badly and Sarah is besotted with him. But after another ‘accident’ involving Billy’s temper, Sarah’s face and a night in the A&E, Sarah’s friends Martha and Flower decide that it’s time to take action. What should they do? Reason with him? Send him to anger management classes? Hire a hit man? Martha and Flower have problems of their own: Martha is seven months pregnant by one of three possible blokes (she did this mainly to wind up her sanctimonious vicar father); and hippie Flower’s career as a stand-up comic is more sit-down after some nasty encounters with south London’s finest hecklers. Will Martha survive single-motherhood on a council estate in need of a peace-keeping force? Will Flower find the perfect put-down? And will they sort out Billy before he gets to them first…? Jo Brand tells it like it is in her darkly comic and sharply observed debut novel.
