'Lively . . . a joy to read' - The Times

Shortlisted for the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse prize

From the bestselling author of A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian

North London in the twenty-first century: a place where a son will swiftly adopt an old lady and take her home from hospital to impersonate his dear departed mother, rather than lose the council flat.

A time of golden job opportunities, though you might have to dress up as a coffee bean or work as an intern at an undertaker or put up with champagne and posh French dinners while your boss hits on you.

A place rich in language - whether it's Romanian, Ukrainian, Russian, Swahili or buxom housing officers talking managementese.

A place where husbands go absent without leave and councillors sacrifice cherry orchards at the altar of new builds.

Marina Lewycka is back in this hilarious, farcical, tender novel of modern issues and manners.

Review:

Lively . . . a joy to read (The Times)

Insightful, witty and engaging, painting a picture of modern Britain that will be at once recognizable and enlightening. (Stylist ‘Book Wars’)

Entertaining and timely (Evening Standard)

Laugh-out-loud . . . [an] appealing, entertaining social comedy. (Daily Express)

Warmth, kindness and inclusivity lie at the core of all Lewycka's books, and are the keys to her popularity. [In The Lubetkin Legacy] she offers a heartfelt message about the vital importance of tolerance and community. (Sunday Times)

Hilarious . . . strong characters, lively pace and general feelgood tone . . . Don't leave it too long before treating yourself to this satisfying, easy read. (My Weekly)

Loved it to bits - it's so big-hearted, filled with such great characters and such cracking jokes, and, underneath it all, so very angry about the state of Britain today. (Deborah Moggach)

If I could write something a tenth as funny as this I would die happy. (Emma Beddington, author of We’ll Always Have Paris)
