Publisher's Summary

To her friends, Amber leads the perfect life with her successful marriage, her powerful job in London and her immaculate style. But as more of her friends fall pregnant, and her best friend, Dylan, announces his decision to adopt a baby with his gay lover, Amber's carefully structured world begins to fall apart.

Intricately crafted and sensually evocative, Something I'm Not is a sharp, contemporary novel that discusses the way the psychological scars of the past pass through the generations of a family. With a charming and complex heroine, a group of friends heading towards midlife - some of who are only just finding out who they really are - Something I'm Not is a subtle novel that poses the questions most women are too afraid to ask.

What the Critics Say

"A complex odyssey that is ambitious in scope, carefully structured and highly accessible. It trumpets the courage needed to make - and stand by - difficult, life-defining decisions, as well as the hereditary effects of unresolved trauma and the importance of friends to our mental well-being...negotiate[s] all this without resorting to psychobabble or sentimentality, and still boast[s] authenticity and poignancy." (The Sunday Telegraph)

"Sparkling...Amber is a strong and sympathetic heroine and her friends are well-rounded individuals and recognisable contemporary types...Beresford's deft plotting and warm and witty writing makes this an assured debut." (The Daily Mail)
