"Mary Rose MacKinnon -- nicknamed Mr or 'Mister' -- is a successful author who has opted to put aside her career in her forties and devote herself to her young family. She livesin a comfortable urban neighbourhood with her partner, a busy theatre dire ctor, and their two children, trying valiantly and often hilariously to balance the demands of (mostly) solo parenting with the needs of her relentlessly spry but elderly parents. As a chuld, she suffered from an illness, long since cured and 'filed separately' in her mind. But as domestic frustrations mount, she experiences a flare-up of forgotten symptoms which compel her to rethink her own childhood. Over the course of one outwardly ordinary week, Mister's world threatens to unravel, as the spectre of violence raisesits head with dangerous implications for her and her children. Crafted wit h humour and unerring emotional accuracy, 'Adult Onset' is a contemporary tale by turns searing and uplifting." - from the dustjacket. Very good in clean, crisp, unclipped dustjacket.
