Description
English novelist Matt Whyman once enjoyed a quiet writer's life in the countryside, until his career wife Emma discovered the existence of a pig said to fit in a handbag. After seeing a few irresistible photos on the Internet, she decided that a pair of them would be a perfect addition to a clan that already included a wolfish dog, a misanthropic feline, a free-range chicken who ranged into their yard, and four children—two of them teenagers. But none of them could have anticipated the impact of two riotous, raucous little piglets, from turning Whyman's office into a literal pigsty, and stealing his spot on the family sofa, to trashing his neighbor's garden while drunk on fermented apples. Whyman's hilarious memoir relates how Butch and Roxi swiftly established themselves as "animals of mass distraction."

"What a fabulous, funny read! I enjoyed every page. Highly recommended for anyone with a pet, a partner, a family, a sense of humor ... or even a mini-pig."—Sophie Kinsella
