  Mavis Cheek Monday 4 March 2002  
Dilys Homes seems to have it all; married to a loving and affluent lawyer, she also has her own career in art. But when Brief Encounter at Bristol Temple Mead train station with a woolly-hatted stranger with sapphire-blue eyes turns into Basic Instinct, her safe world is torn apart. She embarks on the love affair of her life under the pretext of visiting her old Aunt Eliza who she hasn't seen for many years.

Mavis Cheek joins Jenni to discuss her latest novel The Sex Life of My Aunt, published today.
The Sex Life of My Aunt by Mavis Cheek, published by Faber and Faber, ISBN 0571205089
