Longlisted for the Womens Prize for Fiction 2013
The most perfectly formed, originally voiced, heartbreakingly real story I've read in years. I laughed, I cried, and mostly I just marvelled at how bloody brilliant this book is - Mariella Frostrup
For fans of Six Feet Under this bittersweet novel is tragic and life affirming. This is a book for fans of Will Self, Nicola Barker and Mark Haddon.
