Superwoman by Shirley Conran


‘What is a home? A home is a myth. A home is the Forth Bridge, one damn long, never-ending cleaning job which nobody notices unless you don’t do it.’

Cheerful and friendly, sensible and practical, SUPERWOMAN is a guide to saving stress, time and money. Published in 1975 – even before the birth of the microwave oven – the tips are still relevant and it still makes you laugh.
