Was It Something I Said?: Misadventures in suburbia


Ros Thomas

Sometimes I fantasise about my bloke leaning over the kitchen sink. I like to imagine him up to his elbows in suds teaching that saucepan with the burnt-on scrambled eggs a lesson in brute force.

The stories in Was It Something I Said? are for anyone who has grown up, fallen in love, failed, persevered – and is still looking for the meaning of modern life. Laugh-out-loud funny, revealing, and profoundly genuine, Ros Thomas will have you reminiscing and nodding in recognition.

Whether writing about the homesick Irishman she found on the beach, her foiled attempt to seduce her husband or why dog-people and cat-people can never be friends, journalist Ros Thomas writes with the kind of humour and clarity that keeps her readers coming back to her columns week after week.

Pre-signed copies are available.
