"Fay Weldon offers an amusing send-up of modern relationships and child-rearing practices in this caustic novel about a middle-class London couple." "Hattie, a literary agent, and lefty journalist Martyn have elected to partner rather than submit to official wedlock and become husband and wife. For their infant, Kitty, they hire a young, beautiful Polish au pair with a college degree in early childhood education. She brings a glorious, unprecedented order to their household and charms them with belly dancing and gourmet meals, allowing Hattie to return to work and the pair to enjoy real food and sex once in a while. It's Hattie's grandmother, Frances, however, who narrates, and she suspects that Agnieszka Wyszynska isn't quite what she seems. But Hattie and Martyn, weakened by their plum setup, will do anything to keep their live-in nanny, including pushing their relationship to the brink - and perhaps beyond."--BOOK JACKET.
