Ariel Leve has the ability to turn any personal disaster into a funny, endearing, self-deprecating story. Her 'Cassandra' column is one of the most popular in the "Sunday Times", and this book gathers together the very best of the pieces, arranging them into themes, ranging from ways of getting through the day, to health concerns, romantic disasters, personality defects and a whole calamitous catalogue of worst case scenarios. Hypochondriac, neurotic, habitual sweater-of-the-small-stuff, Cassandra is one of life's worriers. She counts it a good day if she manages to get out of bed. If someone should ask: What's the worst that can happen? she has a ready-made list and lives in permanent fear of what's to come. But at least, as a pessimist, she's fully prepared for any eventuality: people who see the glass half full are only a spill away from disappointment. Whether you've been dumped by the love of your life, lost your job, said the wrong thing at a party, or forgotten to have children, Cassandra is there to remind you that it could be worse - you could be her.
