Chick lit in bovver boots! Three women friends try ineptly to sort out their lives and their men. Slapstick, but asks a serious question: why are some men verbally and physically aggressive to the women they claim to love? And why do said women put up with it? Find similar books Profile.

Jo Brand's Sorting out Billy is messy and unresolved - a bit like life, says Helen Falconer. As a stand-up comic, Jo Brand's act could be paraphrased thus: "I'm shit" (audience laughter); "We're all shit" (more laughter); "Everything is shit" (ecstatic laughter plus rapturous applause). Pass me that cream cake. Like several of her peers, she has branched out into novel-writing, but her outlook stays unchanged. And "Life is shit" is a harsh message to be handed without the leavening background noise of people laughing. Three south London women are firm friends.

Jo Brand tells it like it is in her darkly comic and sharply observed novel about the things we do for love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book I've read in a long time
This is one funny lady. First saw her on Graham Norton show. Looked up her books & have bought them all. My wife has read this one twice in the past month.
I suggest you get this book & I bet you buy the rest of her books soon after. She's the kind of lady you wished lived next door so you could talk to her often.

For those who not familiar with British comedienne Jo Brand, this book is a decent introduction to her satirical, biting wit. In her first effort as an author, she tells the story of 3 friends, Martha, Flower, and Sarah. Martha is the product of a dysfunctional family. Her father was the village Vicar (Minister) and revenge against him has been her motive for living. Flower is the duaghter of hippie parents and yearns to be a successful stand up comic, and Sarah has a successful career. Billy is Sarah's boyfriend, who has anger-management problems and needs to be "sorted" according to Martha and Flower.

We follow Martha through her last two months of pregnancy as we wonder, along with her, who fathered her child. We see Flower struggle to hold her own doing her stand-up routine in various London clubs, only to discover that one of the hecklers in her audience is stalking her. We see Sarah and Billy in their relationship issues, and various attempts at interventions by Martha and Flower. As serious as these problems are to each woman, Brand's deliciously wicked observations make them laughable and believable. The vignettes with Martha's mother are hilarious.

If you are not familiar with the English way of life, you may find yourself on the internet looking up various terms -- such as "council house" (public housing). However, if you don't get hung up on those little details, you will find this a fun, easy read.
