Description
Georgie Sinclair's life is coming unstuck, in this "big-hearted confection of the comic and the poignant" (Literary Review), the third novel from the author of the Orange and Booker Prize–nominated A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian and the Orwell Prize runner-up Strawberry Fields. Georgie's husband has left her, her son is obsessed with the End of the World, and now her elderly neighbor Mrs. Shapiro has determined that they are related. Or so the hospital informs her, when Mrs. Shapiro has an accident and names Georgie her next of kin. Suddenly Georgie is managing Mrs. Shapiro's rickety house full of cats, overseeing useless repair contractors, warding off real estate agents, and dodging a social worker who wants to put Mrs. Shapiro in a nursing home. And then there are the letters Georgie finds, which suggest that even Mrs. Shapiro may not be who she seems.

"Vibrant dialogue, a family in meltdown, a clash of cultures and wonderful cast of expertly observed characters. Pure laugh-out-loud social comedy."—Daily Mail (London)
