Mavis Cheek is the author of 15 books

‘Mavis Cheek may well be the spokes-woman for a generation.’ Observer

‘There has always been a touch of the Alan Bennett about Mavis Cheek. Both writers share an uncanny talent for capturing the cadences of the way we speak, and for re-creating them on the page so delicately and with such charm that it takes your breath away.’ Daily Mail

Mavis Cheek is the critically-acclaimed author of sixteen novels including Three Men on a Plane, Amenable Women, and most recently Beautiful Men.

Her work traces the lives and mishap-laden loves of smart, sharply drawn women navigating the absurdities of middle age.
