Overview

What do older women want? And older than what, anyway? Love, flattery, an end to baby-sitting, a night out without falling asleep? Or the very last chance of gratifying desire, of finding a soul-mate - even if it means paying over the odds...?

Confessions of a Sugar Mummy provides the hilarious answer to the most pressing questions for women who have reached a certain age: am I past it? Why is the pursuit of happiness an acceptable goal for all members of the human race except Old Bags?

Money, as so often, turns out to be the solution. And when a sixty-something with frankly limited prospects, finds her flat is worth a fortune, she jumps at the chance of entering the world of property with the glamorous younger Frenchman, Alain.

Until, to her horror, she realises she can't turn back until the final question is answered: can money buy me love?

Meet the Author

Born in London, Emma Tennant was educated at St Paul's Girls' School and spent the World War II years and her childhood summers at the family's faux Gothic mansion The Glen in Peeblesshire. Her family also owned estates in Trinidad.

Tennant grew up in the modish London of the 1950s and 1960s. She worked as a travel writer for Queen magazine and an editor for Vogue, publishing her first novel, The Colour of Rain, under a pseudonym when she was twenty-six. Between 1975 and 1979, she edited a literary magazine, Bananas, which helped launch the careers of several young novelists.

A large number of books by Tennant have followed: thrillers, children's books, fantasies, and several revisionist takes on classic novels, including a sequel to Pride and Prejudice called Pemberley. In later years, she began to write about her own life in such books as Burnt Diaries (1999), which details her affair with Ted Hughes.

Tennant has been married four times, including to the journalist and author Christopher Booker and the political writer Alexander Cockburn. She has two daughters and a son, author Matthew Yorke. In April 2008, she married her partner of 33 years, Tim Owens.
