Quick read by the Irish author
Filled with her characteristic bend of humour and pathos, Catherine Barry introduces us to Finn, a young woman struggling to come to terms with growing up and her need to feel more feminine. Finn has felt unhappy with her chest size since she was a girl and decides that her failed relationships, dysfunctional childhood and poor job prospects can all be put down to the fact that her image is lacking. Everywhere she turns thin, large breasted, beautiful women assault her. She is convinced that with bigger breasts she will finally be happy, she will finally be a 'real woman'. Indeed, post-operative Finn's life changes dramatically, but is it all she imagines?
