With keen observation and an enduring sense of irony Amy Schoeman chronicles Lizelle’s journey from being a woman with no clear idea of what she wants to one who chooses personal freedom and control over her life. This is not a flowerpot is sometimes shocking, often funny, this wry account of an imprudent marriage is abidingly entertaining. Above all it carries the torch for the abused woman.

Content: This is not a flowerpot

What have you ever achieved in your life?
Do what you want for a change
How come you're not a virgin?
You murdered my dog
The peas weren't too bad
He can fix things
So where were you whoring around all afternoon?
It's all right for you
To see ourselves as others see us
My mother never had a washing machine
Your crime is that you exist
I do like the shape of your blouse
By the way, Mr Tomlinson, your hairpiece is slipping
He got so mad he strangled his pet rabbit
This is not a flowerpot
Come over to the fire and warm your hands
Why did you went so fast?
I've called my dogs off
I'm not leaving until you've given me supper
Whose child is she anyway?
