*PRE-ORDER NOW* The bestselling author of A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian is in top form tackling money laundering and the state of Britain today in this vibrant, laugh-out-loud novel George Pantis is in a pickle. After walking out on his wife Rosie on Referendum night 2...016 to shack up with hairdresser 'Brexit Brenda' next door, he thinks he's got it made - especially when he wins millions on a Kosovan lottery he only vaguely remembers entering. Unfortunately, he's forgotten his password and can't get at his money. Which is a problem because he suddenly has to contend with lots of forceful new friends desperate to know his mother's maiden name. As things quickly get out of hand, George must make a mad dash from Sheffield to the Adriatic - and into the arms of organized crime gangs who specialise in illegal kidney transplants and heroin smuggling. George is in need of rescue - both from this pickle and from himself. But will his son Sensible Sid, Brenda and Rosie put aside their differences long enough to help? And might the journey bring this dysfunctional family back together? ----------------------------------------- Praise for Marina Lewycka 'Lewycka is a seriously talented comic writer' Time Out 'Pure laugh-out-loud social comedy' Daily Mail 'Hilarious and horrifying . . . funny, clever and well observed' Guardian 'Marina Lewycka is funny, intelligent and refreshingly generous. She writes about modern life so well' New Statesman
