La señora Jane Tressider nunca ha tenido miedo de decir lo que piensa, ni siquiera para reconocer que al hacerlo haya podido ofender a alguien.

Partiendo de los angeles premisa de que las suegras han sido mal entendidas y nadie se ha puesto jamás de su lado, Jane está decidida a poner las cosas en su sitio y a defender al grupo más difamado que existe sobre l. a. faz de los angeles tierra. El resultado es este diario, una hilarante comedia de modales y una sutil sátira de costumbres y actitudes típicamente eduardianas.
