9780007234066: The Unfortunates

Reissue of a classic novel from the bestselling author of `The Future Homemakers of America'.What hope is there for Poppy Minkel? She has kinky hair, out-sticking ears, too yellow a neck and an appetite for fun, and her mother Dora despairs of ever finding her a husband, despite the Minkel's Mustard fortune that seasons these dubious attractions. When Daddy disappears, Poppy's tendency to the unusual is quietly allowed to flourish. World War I opens new horizons. With never a moment of self-doubt, she invents her own extraordinary life in step with the unfolding century.

About the Author:

Laurie Graham is the author of eight novels. `The Ten O'Clock Horses' was shortlisted for the Encore Award and dramatized for Radio 4, as was `Perfect Meringues'. Laurie is a former Daily Telegraph columist and contributing editor to She magazine, and wrote the bestselling `Parents' Survival Guide'. In addition to her novels, she writes original dramas and adaptations for BBC Radio. Her ten-episode dramatization of `Little Women' was broadcasted on Woman's Hour.

Review:

Praise for `The Unfortunates':'It is a marvel. Graham's style is riveting, hilarious one-liners falling in quick succession.' Anthea Lawson, The Times'My unputdownable book of the year. I laughed and cried.' Shereen Nanjiani, Sunday Herald'An irrepressible adventurer, Poppy is a comic combination of innocence and pluck, but although this is a brisk, breezy read, it's also a novel with serious bite.' Hephzibah Anderson, Daily Mail'Laurie Graham is a writer with a remarkably malleable comic voice.' Alex Clark, The Guardian'Fresh, funny and smart, a novel that reels from the Titanic to jazz age New York.' Observer`This wildly funny novel ... is often on the brink of being a wildly tragic one.' The Sunday Times`A compelling read.' Hello!`Poppy Minkel is a wonderfully original, naive character, and Graham injects her with the same eccentric humour all her protagonists share, making it impossible not to love her. A fantastic, engrosssing read.' Glamour
