‘Woodward’s study of the ways in which we consume ourselves and those we love is surprising – and surprisingly charming – darkly witty and altogether brilliant’ Easy Living

The English are an unusual bunch: quirky and eccentric, often reserved and reticent, but always strong and resilient. Tory Pace, the heroine of this beautifully written and hilarious black comedy, is all of these things. Typically, she’s trying to make the best of life in a difficult time: struggling, as only a mother can, to sustain her family in a land starved of nourishment. But like so many triumphs over adversity, her survival comes with a heavy price.

Beginning shortly after the outbreak of war and continuing into the deftly drawn austerity years that followed, Woodward offers a generous family saga. Equally memorable for poignant moments of sadness, comic tableau, witty observations and unforgettable characters, Nourishment is a novel like no other – every bit as unique and charming as an English family, in fact.

Review:

'Woodward's slow-burning black comedy is a good yarn, with some fine period detail and a few wonderfully surreal moments.' Guardian
'Full of English eccentricity, black farcical comedy and fine phrasing that makes Woodward's writing so moreish.' --Sunday Telegraph

Book Description:

The Man Booker Prize shortlisted author delivers a touching, hillarious and engrossing portrait of family life
