              I don't recall reading Puberty Blues so much as devouring it. I was about thirteen, alone in my bedroom with the door firmly shut. I was fascinated. Kylie Minogue A revolutionary and timeless book. 'By day, we were at school learning logarithms, but by night - in the back of cars..., under the bowling alley, on Cronulla Beach, or, if you were lucky, in a bed while someone's parents were out - you paid off your friendship ring.' For Deb and Sue, life is about surfies, panel vans, straight-leg Levis, nicking off from school, getting wasted, friendships and fitting in. But why should guys have all the fun? When Deb and Sue decide to take to the waves on boards, a whole culture is upturned. Puberty Blues is raw, humorous and painfully honest. An Australian classic that has been reimagined in film and on TV and shocking, exercising, empowering and entertaining readers for more than four decades.

              Now an adult on L-plates, Debbie and her girlfriends reveal what women talk about when there are no men around. Prepare yourself for full-frontal comedic camaraderie. After breaking off with both her best friend and boyfriend, Debbie runs away to the inner-city world of punk rock..., dodgy jobs, new mates and R-rated adventures. It's the kaleidoscopic 1980s, a time of perms, shoulder pads, Blondie and Bowie, prawn cocktails, fondue parties and mistaking promiscuity for feminism. The blokes are laughing all the way to the sperm bank - of course they're for `free love' as they don't have to pay for it. Preyed upon by married men and misogynistic bosses, girlfriends are the only people you can rely on. Debbie's female pals are her human Wonderbras - uplifting and supportive. But it's not until the girls' night out that these friends really peel off to their emotional undies ... And it's a psychological striptease which reveals some jaw-dropping truths. With equal parts humour and pathos, Kathy Lette, one of the pioneering voices of contemporary feminism, exposes all the fun and foolish things girls do when scrabbling to find their high-heeled feet in the world.

              When Lucy's husband of 18 years runs out on her, she'll do anything to win him back. Including climbing out of her bedroom window at one in the morning wearing her daughter's mini skirt. Jasper has left Lucy for her best friend, the chic and thin interior decorator Renee. To make... matters worse, her teenage daughter Tally, blames her Mum. 'Dad left because you've let yourself go, you're overweight and you nagged him. No wonder he buggered off.' While Tally is busy trying to find a loophole in her birth certificate so she can put herself up for adoption, Lucy's tries to accept that a child is for life and not just for Christmas. Although a signed-up member of Underachievers Anonymous, in Lucy's quest to win back her husband she learns to be a surf life saver, loses weight and gets a job. She also falls in lust, finding herself torn between an older and a much younger man. But it's not until Lucy makes the Freudian discovery that her toy boy is also dating her daughter - and that he's been paid to do so by her conniving ex as ammunition for a custody battle, that she finally learns to stand on her own two stilettos.

              Ruby has always been the generous mediator among her friends, family and colleagues, which is why they have all turned up to celebrate her 50th birthday. But after a few too many glasses of champers, Ruby's speech doesn't exactly go to plan. Instead of delivering the witty and wa...rm words her guests are expecting, Ruby takes her moment in the spotlight to reveal what she really thinks of every one of them. She also accuses her husband, Harry, of having an affair. Saving the best till last, Ruby lambasts her octogenarian mother for a lifetime of playing her three daughters against each other. It's blisteringly brutal. As the stunned gathering gawks at Ruby, the birthday girl concludes her bravura monologue with the throwaway comment that she has terminal cancer. She has cashed in her life savings and plans on taking her two sisters cruising into the sunset for a dose of Husband Replacement Therapy. Courageous? Or ruthlessly selfish? But do they even want to go with her now that she's cast herself off into social Siberia?

              We are some years on now from Puberty Blues. Debbie and friends know for sure that girlfriends are the only people you can rely on to be supportive and uplifting when you make the right decisions, and the wrong ones, over and over again. And even though they know that there are o...nly two things wrong with men - everything they say and everything they do - why, oh why do they keep falling for the wrong guys and saying yes when they mean no? Hooray for the regular girls' night out, the one evening you can't stand your girlfriends up if a better offer comes along. Kathy Lette has returned to her second novel Girls Night Out, written when she was 20, and given it a complete rewrite.

              It's brains versus Botox Lizzie's life is so perfect she has to look down to see cloud nine...until she realizes she's about to hit the dreaded four-oh.

Until, that is, she lose...s her job to a younger, more telegenic journalist -- and her husband to a sex goddess who keeps fit by doing step aerobics off her ego. That's when she starts to wonder about brains versus Botox. For Lizzie's sister, beauty is one of the most natural and lovely things money can buy. But must Lizzie go under the knife to win back the man she loves? The answer is as obvious as a pre-1990s nose job. This book will have you in stitches...literally!

              What do you do when you're told you've got terminal cancer at 50? Take up crochet, get religion and bow out gracefully? Or upend your life and spend every remaining minute exploring new pleasures? Ruby has always been the generous mediator among her friends, family and colleagues..., which is why they have all turned up to celebrate her 50th birthday. But after a few too many glasses of champers, Ruby's speech doesn't exactly go to plan.
