    Belinda wistfully reflects how much better at sex she is now than when she was in her twenties. She's thought about taking a lover, but ultimately could never do that to her husband Tom. So imagine her despair when she discovers he's having an affair... Nicholson casts an unflinching eye on men's attitude to sex, women, love and family life. This is our own familiar world rendered pacy, funny, emotionally on the button and hugely entertaining.
