I bought this book knowing nothing about it, but from the first moment, I knew I was going to love this.
Take a trip into the world of the Catchprices, a disparate, disfuntional family. With a twisted half angel half demon, a hare krishna, a country and western singer and Granny Catchprice the matriarch, the would-be flower grower; all living within the dark and desperate confines of their car-selling business. Their lives are turned upside down and inside out by a well-meaning, heavily pregnant tax-inspector.
This book takes a long hard look at families and their conections, and how the past will always catch you up! It is about hidden secrets and dark histories, and is not always an easy read. But the language in this book is simply breathtaking. It is both simple and profound, but also highly complex and sophisticated. And is simply amazing.
Read this book. It is dark at times, but is never morbid or depressing. Truly beautiful.
