Summary
Men have more straightforward relationships. They don't hang up phones in a huff with each other. They don't feud and not speak for months over insignificant issues. Men don't weep at something another man says. Or hate them for years because of it... Ruth Rothwax likes women, but she wants them to like each other more, and not be so aggressive, so competitive with other females. She's even thinking of starting a women's group: a small group of smart women who'll care about each other and collectively gain more power for themselves and others. And Ruth practices what she preaches. Every day she shows support for her close female friends. She's a good friend to have. If only all women were like her.Then her father's sixty-seven-year-old busty blonde girlfriend enters the scene, with a suitcase full of plans. So as Ruth's carefully calibrated life is turned upside down, all her sisterly solidarity, all her 'we're here to support and nurture each other' ideals fly out the window. 'You gotta have balls' is Lily Brett's funniest novel to date, and demonstrates in laugh-out-loud prose a writer whose brilliance for tragedy is rivalled only by her genius for comedy
