A Bit of A Do by David Nobbs is about two middle-aged couples whose long-term marriages break down.
In a series of six hilarious social gatherings they and their relations and friends interact with one another as they try to rebuild their shattered lives.
David Nobbs is a very witty writer and he handles these sensitive and moving issues with assurance.
Although I enjoyed this excellent book, towards the end I found that some of Nobbs’ humorous repetitive devices wore a little thin and thus would not bear rereading. However, it is well worth reading once.
