Mavis Cheek was born and grew up in Wimbledon. She failed her eleven plus (twice!) and was put in the B stream of a secondary modern school, where she tried, completely unsuccessfully, to learn to become a good and dutiful secretary. Instead, she left school at sixteen with no qualifications and immediately began working for Editions Alecto, the contemporary art publishers, where she worked with British and American artists such as David Hockney, Allen Jones, Bridget Riley, Patrick Caulfield and George Segal and was part of the team running Alecto's gallery in Albemarle Street, at the heart of the London art market. After twelve happy years at Editions Alecto, she left to go to Hillcroft College for Women from where she graduated in Arts with distinction. She then had her daughter, Bella, and began her writing career in earnest, being blessed in this by her complete lack of qualifications to do anything else. Journalism and travel writing were her first successes.From AudioFile:
Don't be fooled by narrator Eve Matheson's lyrical, precise delivery. At its first note, this audiobook may seem formal, but the early impressions give way to great humor and superb character development. This gem of a novel revolves around Margaret, whose life has thus far revolved around her niece, daughter of her tragically lost sister. Margaret's responsibility is lightened when her niece embarks on a journey to visit her long absent father, and suddenly the world seems far more accessible to the novel's heroine. As the title suggests, it is time for Aunt Margaret to have some solitude and perhaps more than a little fun. This novel is addictive in its use of humor, description, and realistic dialogue, and Matheson's beautiful reading makes the story more alive and real.
