A hilarious and poignant novel from one of Britain's most entertaining and provocative writers.
Lucy desperately wants a baby. Sam is determined to write a hit movie. The problem is that both their efforts seem to be unfruitful. And given that the average IVF cycle has about a one in five chance of going into full production, Lucy's chances of getting what she wants are considerably better than Sam's.
What Sam and Lucy are about to go through is absolutely inconceivable. The question is, can their love survive?
Inconceivable confirms Ben Elton as one of Britain’s most significant, entertaining and provocative writers.
“Moving and thoroughly entertaining”
“A very funny book about a sensitive subject...Ben Elton the writer might be even funnier than Ben Elton the comic”
“A tender, beautifully balanced romantic comedy”
“Extremely funny, clever, well-written, sharp and unexpectedly moving...This brilliant, chaotic satire merits rereading several times”
Nicholas Coleridge, Mail on Sunday
“This is Elton at his best - mature, humane, and still a laugh a minute. At least”
“Only Ben Elton could combine uncomfortable questions about gender politics with a gripping, page-turning narrative and jokes that make you laugh out loud”
“A very funny book about a sensitive subject ... Ben Elton the writer might even be funniter than Ben Elton the comic”
