Flying Under Bridges

Sandi Toksvig

This is a very funny and very accurate depiction of suburban life. It is also gloriously over the top. I laughed out loud more than once. Read it! - you won't be disappointed.

Extract

In some ways I think it's quite simple. I mean, guests ruin weddings all the time, although I will admit it is probably less usual for them to do it by killing the groom. I do want to be honest about what happened. I didn't entirely mean to kill him. Well, I may have meant to but I didn't plan it. I was after all, the mother of the bride, which I think anyone would say carries a certain responsibility.
