For Richard and Sarah, leaving the rat-race of London for the sleepy village of Worth feels like a dream come true. But their new life isn’t quite as idyllic as it first seems. The cottage is tiny and the neighbours are excruciating. Soon they find themselves reverse-commuting back to London on the weekends, just to be with people they like. Then Catherine moves in next door. Smart, sophisticated, beautiful Catherine seems like the answer to their prayers. But will their new best friend turn out to be their enemy?

Review:

"He is arguably the finest comic novelist working in Britain today. Indeed, he may just be the finest comic anything working in Britain right now... Canter's prose is achingly funny...it is also vital, acute, literary and oddly moving." (James Kidd Independent)

"Brilliantly good - so precise and well-observed and witty, and also one of the few books I've ever read that manages to be both tense and funny" (Craig Brown)

"Hilarious... Smart, confident and, in places, eye wateringly upfront" (Elizabeth Buchan Sunday Times)

"Powered by Jon Canter's sharp and original wit and his constantly fizzing prose...an acute and very funny novel about the perils of rural life and of falling a little bit in love with your next-door neighbour" (Daily Mail)

"As an advertisement for either urban or rural living among self-satisfied characters, Worth is a toe-curling horror story; as a cheeky and well-directed poke in said characters' eyes, it's a winner" (Independent on Sunday)

Book Description:

‘An acute and very funny novel about the perils of rural life’ - Daily Mail

Worth is a fast-paced and touching comedy about how escaping the rat-race isn't all it's cracked up to be.
