Korte inhoud

'Don't let them get the flat!'
- these are Lily Lukashenko's dying words to her son.

North London in the twenty-first century; a place where a son will swiftly adopt an old lady and take her home 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 intern at an undertaker's 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 Lawycka tells a new, funny, briljant story of life, love, death and the perils of not being George Clooney in the modern world.

Dit boek in de pers

Wonderfully funny... Lewycka is somewhere between Hilary Mantel in her satirical mode and Sue Townsend.   

Lewycka is a great humourist.   

Marina Lewycka is a writer of great warmth and considerable comic and observational gifts.
