Product description


A book you just can't put down.--Western Morning News

A brave, bold, warm, rich, amusing, engaging novel which sits well alongside more established authors like Kate Atkinson's 'Behind the Scenes at the Museum.--Hello Magazine

A warm, moving, wonderful read.--Wendy Holden

An extraordinary story... A born storyteller with a gift for characterization, she writes with warmth, lovely earthy detail and a pathos which keeps a lump lodged in the throat... echoes of Victoria Wood and Laurie Graham, it is a cracking first novel.--The Daily Mail

By turns deeply moving and funny, the narrative zips along in an appealing and spirited voice.--Kate Long

Deftly written, very moving.--The Bookbag

Sophie Duffy explores grief and the vagaries of inter-family relationships with her usual blend of warmth, wit and wisdom. A triumph.--Margaret Graham

Sophie Duffy has written a powerful first novel & shows huge promise.--Katie Fforde

Sophie Duffy is a real find. Sharp as a tack.--Laurie Graham

Sophie Duffy is a talent to be reckoned with. She writes with empathy, clarity and huge skill. Read The Generation Game and enjoy!--Margaret Graham
