A darkly and brilliantly funny look at what being a fly on the wall is really like, Life Without Me is Anna Legat's debut novel. Georgie Ibsen is a successful, cynical, fortysomething hotshot lawyer. She runs her life, professional and personal, with precision and clear purpose. She's just made a breakthrough in a crucial case, her family is growing more independent ... things couldn't be better. Until it all comes to a screeching halt when she's involved in a hit-and-run and ends up in a coma. Somehow, in her comatose state, Georgie is given unique glimpses into the lives of her nearest and dearest, their most intimate secrets: her boring husband's intense involvement with a colleague; her son's lovelorn yearning for his mother's nurse; her fifteen-year-old daughter's bad boy boyfriend, who just might be linked to the criminal mastermind involved in her last big case... Throw in a neurotic actress sister, a senile mother with a traumatic past, and a smug subordinate barrister who's out to ruin her case in her absence...oh, and a sex-god lawyer extraordinaire who's a deeply troubled soul with a penchant for some unsavoury practices...although Georgie is out of action, life certainly isn't boring without her!
