'This is Posy Simmonds territory; we're among fretful middle-class types who take themselves very seriously and make an enormous meal of every bit of slap-and-tickle. That these people are bearable company is entirely down to the author's lively wit and acute understanding of the emotional landscape.'
--Kate Saunders, The Times, 23rd October 2010

It encompasses several subplots, but its main focus is that of the narrator changing his way of life to buy a country pub and start a micro-brewery, while learning to love his complex bulimic partner. The arts feature in a lucid and visual way - ceramics and architecture especially.
There is a depth of knowledge of country lives and settings, and a historic sense - the Levellers and Diggers feature - and a convincing pattern of relationships within families. In spite of the grim bulimic theme the overall sense is of sunlight and pleasure in the rural life making up for it.
