Review

An exuberantly comic writer whose work is characterised by both great humanity and unusual charm (Evening Standard)

A witty, touching story about an unlikely friendship (Express)

Gorgeously funny (Independent)

Had me crying with laughter (Daily Telegraph)

Vibrant dialogue, a family in meltdown, a clash of cultures and wonderful cast of expertly observed characters. Pure laugh-out-loud social comedy (Daily Mail)

Hilarious. A big-hearted confection of the comic and the poignant (Literary Review)

A big, bustling novel, told with enthusiasm by a narrator who is warm, winningly disaster-prone and, crucially, believable (Spectator)

Georgie is a lively, intensely sympathetic narrator ... brimming with warmth and busyness (Guardian)

Marina Lewycka is an instantly likeable writer, funny, intelligent and refreshingly generous in her assessments of people and their motivations. She writes about modern life so well. An extremely enjoyable read (New Statesman)

Uplifting. Lewycka's style is so appealing, so friendly (Sunday Times)

From the Back Cover

'Vibrant dialogue, a family in meltdown, a clash of cultures and wonderful cast of expertly observed characters. Pure laugh-out-loud social comedy' Daily Mail

'Excellent, irresistible' Scotland on Sunday

Georgie Sinclair's life is coming unstuck. Her husband's left her. Her son's obsessed with the End of the World. And now her elderly neighbour Mrs Shapiro has decided they are related.

Or so the hospital informs her when Mrs Shapiro has an accident and names Georgie next of kin. This, however, is not a case of a quick ward visit: Mrs Shapiro has a large rickety house full of stinky cats that needs looking after that a pair of estate agents seem intent on swindling from her. Plus there are the 'Uselesses' trying to repair it (uselessly). Then there's the social worker who wants to put her in a nursing home. Not to mention some letters that point to a mysterious, painful past.

As Georgie tries her best to put Mrs Shapiro's life back together somehow she must stop her own from falling apart . . .

'Hilarious. A big-hearted confection of the comic and the poignant' Literary Review

'A big, bustling novel, told with enthusiasm by a narrator who is warm, winningly disaster-prone and, crucially, believable' Spectator

'Beguiling, very funny' Tatler

'A genuinely excellent summer read' Herald
