About this book
The new novel from the author of "The Finkler Question", winner of the Man Booker Prize, 2010. Novelist Guy Ableman is in thrall to vivacious wife Vanessa - beautiful, contrary, highly strung and angry. Trouble is, he is no less in thrall to her alluring mother, Poppy. More like sisters than mother and daughter, they come as a pair, a blistering presence that destroys Guy's peace of mind, suggesting the wildest stories but making it impossible for him to concentrate long enough to write any of them. By turns angry, elegiac and rude, this is a novel about love - of women, literature and laughter.
