Laura would like a baby, but Nick isn't keen—children are one responsibility too many. Nick's problem is his parents. He is devoted to them, but they are getting old and eccentric. The time has come to take the matter in hand, but it must be done carefully.

About the Author:

John Harding was born in a small Fenland village in the Isle of Ely in 1951. After local village and grammar schools, he read English at St Catherine's College, Oxford, where he once sat next to Martin Amis during a lecture. He worked first as a newspaper reporter, then as a writer and editor in magazines, before becoming a freelance writer. His first novel was the acclaimed and bestselling WHAT WE DID ON OUR HOLIDAY. He lives in Richmond upon Thames with his wife and two sons.

Review:

"'A wonderfully funny, original and moving novel...Harding has knife-sharp observation, immaculate timing, and the guts to take his story as far as it will go'" -- Helen Dunmore "'Poignant, hilarious and ultimately deeply moving...a real page turner...a wonderful novel'" -- Marika Cobbold "'A wonderful novel...written with great humour and a rare generosity of spirit. Truly original'" -- Deborah Moggach "'Beautifully crafted...the perfect marriage of humour and heart'" -- Glenn Patterson
