Lucy Kellaway had a comfortable life. For years she had the same prestigious job, the same husband, and the same home. To the casual observer, she was both happy and successful. But one day, Lucy realised that the life she had built for herself no longer suited her. So she proceeded to tear down both marriage and career, and went back to school, retraining as a teacher. A witty and moving story of one woman’s pursuit of a new life, Kellaway’s story is essential listening for anyone facing the joy – and pain – of starting again.
