Michele Hanson grew up an 'oddball tomboy disappointment' in a Jewish family in Ruislip in the 1950s - a suburban, Metroland idyll of neat lawns, bridge parties and Martini socials.

He listens to much advice, especially that of three women friends, each with a different point of view, one a doctor. They chal…
