London and the South-East, By David Szalay

Appropriately enough, much of David Szalay's terrific first novel unfolds in and around Brighton, that last resort of ebbing fantasies. Once a "whippet-like" charmer of clients and girlfriends alike, ad salesman and serious drinker Paul now survives in a fractious step-family and dead-end job – a world superbly evoked in all its grisly, jargon-ridden inanition.

Virginia Ironside’s Dilemmas: My husband had an affair with a married woman, now she is having his baby

Dear Virginia,

I coped when my partner had an affair with a married woman, and we made up. But now we've heard she's just had his baby, and I can't stop thinking about it. I hate the idea of this little girl growing up without her real father (as my sons did), but contact would be painful, as I had a still born daughter years ago. My partner thinks her visits might be consolation for me, but it would be agony. I'm so confused!

Yours sincerely, Regina
