By the author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Changing Babies is a beautiful collection of short stories.
At the swimming pool, Duncan's mother was drying her hair. In the corner of the changing room he saw something he hadn't seen before: it was a big red plastic thing, on legs like a crib. He nudged his mum and pointed. What is that for? he shouted. She switched off the dryer, Whats what for? That. He pointed. Oh, it's for changing babies, she said and she switched on the dryer again and Duncan is then convinced his parents want to swap him for a new one. This is one of the wonderful stories in a new collection of Deborah Moggach's best, Chaning Babies, which will delight both die-hard fans and readers new to her. She writes of a woman who thinks she has found the perfect man until he becomes too mysterious for words, a rock star writing his memoirs who can't remember a thing, life and times in a caravan park, harassed teenagers and harangued fathers. There are opera lovers, Belgian lovers, young lovers, and romance in Manicharo Apartments, courtesy of Sunspan Holidays, all in this collection of stories from the author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.
