A comedy of manners - bad manners - played out in the corridors of Parliament House. Do women really play the game differently? And when life and pain intrude, what happens to ethics? Does the truly human - and ethical - person have to be broken by love? At a time when the faceless people behind Australian politics are more powerful than ever, The Other Woman exposes the shifting loyalties, party intrigues and loss of idealism of the political system. Funny and painful with razor sharp dialogue.

"Nimmo makes an intelligent and well-crafted attempt to pin down the nature of power, and explores what a whiff of it does to the human brain... 'The Other Woman' reminds us that politics is a deadly serious business with collateral damage." - Victoria Laurie, The Australian, July 12, 2002.
