A Shorter History of Tractors in Ukrainian with Handcuffs



For all fans eagerly awaiting the paperback of Marina's new novel Various Pets Alive and Dead -
an ebook-only short story revisiting the characters from the bestselling A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian

Marina Lewycka returns to the characters from A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian, with a hilarious erotic twist, in this laugh-out-loud short story.

'Ever since she'd first read Sherlock Holmes, Laura Carter had dreamed of being a detective . . . Books were both her escape and her guilty pleasure, which eased her through the boring days and enlivened the nights when her husband was too tired for love. She devoured everything from Proust to Harry Potter, from James Joyce to EL James, she adored detective stories, but maybe her favourite author was Marina Lewycka, whose A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian had strangely echoed a case she had once worked on.'
