Description
Big Davey Quinn, the disappointingly unexceptional seventh son of a seventh son, has come home, in this hilarious and sharply observed tale of small town life in England from the author of The Truth About Babies. In 20 years, many things about Davey's hometown have changed, though the locals really haven'tóBob Savory, who always had it in him, has made a million with his company Sandwich Classics; Francie McGinn, the divorced minister at the People's Fellowship, is still trying to convert the town through his Fish-and-Chip Biblical Quiz nights; and Sammy, the town's best plumber, is depressed as ever and looking for solace at the bottom of a whiskey bottle.

"The tone is part elegy, part satire, part howl and very, very funny. I laughed more times than I can remember over a novel for years.... Ring Road is well-observed and endlessly inventive, with all the messiness of a real place. Sansom's deadpan voice throws up jokes on every page."óObserver (London)
