THE AWARD-WINNING; MILLION-COPY BESTSELLER A hilarious; lively; moving and compassionate debut about one Ukrainian-British family's tumultuous relationship and the history they never knew. 'Delightful; funny; touching' Spectator ***** As Romeo and Juliet found to their cost; marriage is never just about two people falling in love; it is about families. Sisters Vera and Nadezhda must aside a lifetime of feuding to save their widowed; tractor-obsessed Ukrainian father from the voluptuous; wealth-obsessed Valentina. With her proclivity for green satin underwear and boil-in-the-bag cuisine; she outmanoeuvres the sisters at every turn. But their campaign to oust Valentina unearths family secrets; uncovers fifty years of European and Ukrainian history; and sends them back to roots they'd much rather forget . . . ***** 'Hugely enjoyable . . . yields a golden harvest of family truths' Daily Telegraph 'Captures the peculiar flavour of Eastern European immigrant life . . . a very rich mixture indeed' Daily Express 'It's rare to find a first novel that gets so much right . . . Lewycka is a seriously talented comic writer' Time Out
