Product description

Review

It's rare to find a first novel that gets so much right . . . Lewycka is a seriously talented comic writer ― Time Out

More than just a jolly romp with political undertones is the way it captures the peculiar flavour of Eastern European immigrant life . . . a very rich mixture indeed, as well as very enjoyable reading ― Daily Express

Funny, gritty, original ... one I adore ― Independent

Remarkable, a lovely novel ― Sunday Telegraph

An extraordinary read . . . nothing short of amazing. A rare treat, all too easy to gulp down in one greedy sitting ― Spectator

Outstanding ― Literary Review

Extremely funny ― The Times

Intelligent, lively, well written and compassionate ― Financial Times

Ploughs a rich comic furrow ― Daily Telegraph

A clever, touching story ― Economist --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
