9780099546825: Worth

A fast-paced, wildly entertaining, and blackly comic novel about the perils of loving your neighbor

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 at first seems. The cottage is tiny, the neighbors are racist, and they find themselves reverse-commuting back to London on the weekends. And then Catherine moves next door and it's love at first sight. Smart, sophisticated Catherine, with her good wine, her foreign travel and—well—her London ways. But there are things about Catherine that don't quite add up—topics avoided, questions unanswered. She describes a manipulative but never-seen sister, who she says is making her life hell. Richard and Sarah offer advice as best they can, but they are starting to feel uneasy. The rural idyll is beginning to fade. Before long Richard and Sarah realize that rather than being the answer to their prayers, Catherine might in fact be quite the opposite.

About the Author:

Jon Canter is the author of two novels, Seeds of Greatness and A Short Gentleman. He has also written stand-up comedy, TV, and radio scripts for many of Britain's most prominent comedians, and comment pieces for the Guardian.

Review:

"Jon Canter is hilarious and self-deprecating, a wonderful, wise and witty writer."  —Helen Fielding, author, Bridget Jones's Diary

"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
