<p><strong>As featured on BBC Radio 4 Good Reads</strong></p> <p><strong>'A timely, bittersweet comic novel' <em>Guardian</em></strong></p> <p><strong>What do you do next, after you’ve changed the world?</strong></p> <p>____________________</p> <p>It is 1928. Matilda Simpkin, rooting through a cupboard, comes across a small wooden club ? an old possession of hers, unseen for more than a decade.</p> <p>Mattie is a woman with a thrilling past and a chafingly uneventful present. During the Women’s Suffrage Campaign she was a militant. Jailed five times, she marched, sang, gave speeches, smashed windows and heckled Winston Churchill, and nothing ? nothing ? since then has had the same depth, the same excitement.</p> <p>Now in middle age, she is still looking for a fresh mould into which to pour her energies. Giving the wooden club a thoughtful twirl, she is struck by an idea ? but what starts as a brilliantly idealistic plan is derailed by a connection with Mattie’s militant past, one which begins to threaten every principle that she stands for.</p> <p><strong><em>Old Baggage</em> is a funny and bittersweet portrait of a woman who has never, never given up the fight.</strong><br /> ____________________</p> <p><strong>'Essential . . .
