At 61, George is settling down to a comfortable retirement. His daughter is getting re-married, to a deeply inappropriate man. All the planning maddens his wife. His son's life crumbles when he fails to invite his lover to the nuptials. Unnoticed in the uproar, George discovers a sinister lesion on his hip, and quietly begins to lose his mind. The way these damaged people fall apart, and come together as a family, is the subject of this disturbing yet amusing portrait of a dignified man trying to go insane politely. By the author of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. Description in Spanish: Pasen y conozcan a la familia Hall, un entranable clan al borde de un ataque de nervios. El padre, George, afronta la jubilacion construyendo un estudio en su jardin y haciendo la vista gorda ante la aventura de su esposa, Jean. Ella encuentra cada vez mas complicado citarse con su amante ahora que su marido anda todo el dia en casa. Para colmo, el matrimonio ve como sus dos hijos, el inseguro Jamie y la temperamental Katie, se han emparejado de la peor forma posible: el con otro hombre, ella con alguien que simplemente no esta a la altura. A medida que se acerca el dia de la boda de Katie, todos tendran que enfrentarse a sus miedos para poner orden en sus atribuladas vidas. Mark Haddon vuelve a mostrar su sensibilidad y humor para el retrato de personajes inolvidables en esta tragicomica historia de conflictos domesticos en la que resulta imposible no reconocerse. Una brillante combinacion de humor y drama como solo el autor de El curioso incidente del perro a medianoche podia lograr.
