40 Fights Between Husbands and Wives

Colm Liddy

In forty funny vignettes Colm Liddy tells the truth about how men and women drive each other crazy and yet remain essential to one another.Whether it's Adam and Eve wondering about giving this business called 'sex' a go, linguist Ferdinand de Saussure forgetting his wife's birthday and paying a very high price, a farmer's wife in Co Clare, dying of cancer, who craves a cuddle but gets a lot more than she bargained for, a teenage boy who overhears his father and a mystery woman taking a little afternoon delight, a young couple's comic and inept attempts to consummate their marriage... each of these pieces is a wonderfully crafted, original and irreverent take on the underlying day-to-day reality of relations between the sexes.

Colm Liddy is a writer, musician and pharmacist. He lives in Co Clare with his wife and five children. Forty Fights Between Husband and Wife is his first book.
