Spine and cover creases, edgewear and soiling on covers, pages and covers age browned (seen before in this edition); interior pages clean, none loose.; Monica Dickens spent a year working on a small provincial paper. This is the story of that adventure. Not only is it full of shrewd observation and robustly drawn characters, it is an engrossing story with a strong element of real-life drama and poignancy. The title refers to it constantly being Monica's turn to make the tea, as the only woman employed by the paper. You will never look at reporting in the same way again and you will especially think twice about the boarding house life.
