The award-winning illustrator and graphic novelist Posy Simmonds may be best known for Tamara Drewe and Gemma Bovery, which have both been made into films starring Gemma Arterton. But her earlier work is equally worthy of celebration. This heavyweight anthology collects her long-running strip that ran in the Guardian throughout the 1980s about the middle-class, mid-life woes of three 1950s school friends, as they try to remain true to the ideals of the 1960s.
