In the kitchen Gillian loads the Hotpoint and frets about letting her baby go.

In the bathroom Clifford styles his hair like Cliff's and wishes for a television.

In the front room Arthur smokes a pipe and plots to fend off the loan sharks.

In her bedroom Annette lifts up her nightie and heads for Clifford's room.

In a tour-de-force of undressed taboo, four monologues intertwine to begin the story of an ordinary family in the fifties. How their seemingly contented, simple world bubbles under with odd desires and secret pangs - how it is shaken when they come to light - and how, step by step with the dawning sixties, life for all of them is whirled into a carousel of fashion, debauchery and explosive revelation.

Review:

'An exciting and powerful novel' Beryl Bainbridge. (Beryl Bainbridge)

'A melodramatic morality tale, exposing the decay beneath the comfortable respectability of a family's life ... it sends nostalgic chintz down in gleeful, satanic flames' Melissa McClements, Financial Times. (Financial Times)

'A tragedy of embarrassment, where every detail is comic' Adam Mars-Jones, Observer. (Observer)

Book Description:

From the '50s to the present day, this is a bold and brilliant depiction of a family and a country caught up in a moral decline.
