KEY POINTS: * A novel of parental despair, for anyone who's ever had children (or for that matter, been a child). * Reissued to coincide with the publication of Europa, which will be a Booker entry. * 'A one-sitting book that reverberates in the mind long after the final page' - Daily Mail. * 'Far funnier than any plot summary could hope to suggest, Goodness negotiates the highwire between tragedy and farce with unerring dexterity' - Independent on Sunday.

THE BOOK: Having made a success of his career and saved his marriage, George Crawley is secure in his belief that he is master of his own destiny. Then fate presents him with an apparently insoluble problem. But the word insoluble is not part of his vocabulary and George will stop at nothing to get his life back on the rails.
