The Sopranos are back: out of school and out in the world, gathered in Gatwick to plan a super-cheap last-minute holiday reunion. Kay, Kylah, Manda, Rachel and Finn are joined by Finn's equally gorgeous friend Ava and are ready to go on the rampage.

Will it be Benidorm or Magaluf, Paris or Las Vegas? One thing is certain: the girls will have a hell of a time getting there. Pitch perfect, darkly comic and brimming with life - in all its squalor, rage, tears and laughter - this is an unforgettable story of female friendship.

Longlisted for the 2010 Man Booker Prize.

Review:

"Memorably bittersweet... [with] brilliantly pitched dialogue and monologue. The final cataclysmic scene is masterly" (Guardian)

"The way that this middle-aged man manages to inhabit a gang of girls with such gusto and conviction is one of the small miracles of contemporary fiction, and Warner has done it once again" (Phil Baker The Sunday Times)

"This is a snarly group picaresque, a black comedy in which Gatwick airport is like Kafka's Castle in reverse... stifling, hilarious and indelible" (Nora Chassler Scottish Review of Books)

"Warner navigates the comic, the philosophical and the socially acute like no other writer we have" (Independent)

"Vigorous and uncannily convincing... Readers would be sorry if Warner were to have finished with these characters" (Daily Telegraph)

Book Description:

Pitch perfect, darkly comic and brimming with life - in all its squalor rage, tears and laughter - this is an unforgettable story of female friendship.
