Adele Parks: Men I've loved before

Adele Parksin viihderomaanissa pohdiskellaan lapsettomuutta tai pikemmin lapsen hankkimista, melkoisen tujakalla huumorilla maustettuna: Men I've loved before (Headline Review, 2011; ISBN 978-0-7553-7127-3).

Kirjassa pähkäillään ihmissuhteiden kiemuroita jossakin määrin omaperäiselläkin tavalla, mutta mitään kummempaa muistijälkeä teoksesta ei jäänyt.

Neil and Nat seem to be perfectly matched. They hate Marmite and the opera. They love reality TV and the missionary position. And they both absolutely do not want children. At least thats what Nat thought. But now Neil seems to have softened to the prospect and hes practically begging her for a baby. Nat tries to ignore his change of heart and wont explain her reasons for hating the idea, she cant. Are they that compatible after all? As the cracks start to show, Nat wonders if Neil really is the man of her dreams. Or is it possible that someone from her past could actually be the one?
