Riassunto: A satire on Thatcherism and a study of human desire, by the author of "Janice Gentle Gets Sexy". The women who cross the portals of Tabitha's Beauty Parlour enter a perfumed world where never a harsh note is struck. Tabitha is benign - but her prospective successor Chloe is of a newer persuasion.
