Er newborn takes a Kafkaesue turn when she's wrongfully arrested in Harrods for shoplifting The only person she can tu. When I was about 14 I got it into my head that I needed to stop reading Katherine Applegate's Making Out series over and over again and start reading proper adult books To this end I borrowed Mad Cows from a family friend I remember two things from it The young one compares her pre pregnancy nipples to Jelly Babies A distressing and unsavoury association that will never leave my brain The old one makes fun of babygrowsonesies during a job interview or something only to realise that the interviewer is wearing one Anyway it's not very good someone tries to breast feed in Harrod's and gets arrested is the crux of it and it drove me into the dread arms of Anne Rice and so is directly to blame for me reading Memnoch the Devil
