If Bridget Jones had two ex-husbands, three children, and invited her entire extended family over for Christmas... Its December 23, and Clara Dunphy is running around Oxford Street like a chicken with its head cut off trying to pick up a few last- minute bits and bobs. Despite the frenzy, the twice-divorced mother of three loves Christmas and always wants to make it perfect.
A challenge even in the best of times, but particularly when family means an extended network of in-laws, out-laws, ex-stepfathers, and hangers-on, totaling sixteen. Is the madness of Christmas really worth it? Clara is a witty, blackly funny everywoman who will win over anyone who has ever longed to shut out the holidays with a giant martini .
. . and some olives.
