Lipstick And Powder
By Sally Worboyes
With all the grit and glitz of the 1970s East End, the new Sally Worboyes is simply compellingAnna has everything to make her happy - a husband, a lovely little house in Bethnal Green, two much-longed-for twin baby boys.

Although children can readily understand its most basic rules, on a higher level checkers can demand great depth of strategic thought. Each is winningly solvable in no more than six and a half moves, and often less by the player who moves first. In numerous problems, the winner even seems at a serious disadvantage from the start.
