              *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.

              A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian is bestselling author Marina Lewycka's hilarious and award winning debut novel, now available as a Penguin Essential for the first time. 'Two years after my mother died, my father fell in love with a glamorous blonde Ukrainian divorcee. He... was eighty-four and she was thirty-six. She exploded into our lives like a fluffy pink grenade, churning up the murky water, bringing to the surface a sludge of sloughed-off memories, giving the family ghosts a kick up the backside.' Sisters Vera and Nadezhda must aside a lifetime of feuding to save their emigre engineer father from voluptuous gold-digger Valentina. With her proclivity for green satin underwear and boil-in-the-bag cuisine, she will stop at nothing in her pursuit of Western wealth. But the sisters' campaign to oust Valentina unearths family secrets, uncovers fifty years of Europe's darkest history and sends them back to roots they'd much rather forget ...'It's rare to find a first novel that gets so much right ...Lewycka is a seriously talented comic writer' Time Out 'Hugely enjoyable ...yields a golden harvest of family truths' Daily Telegraph 'Delightful, funny, touching' Spectator

And although he can't pick strawberries, there's also the Dog...Hilarious, gritty, moving and slapstick, Two Caravans has all the ingredients that made A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian so successful.

              From the bestselling author of A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian. North London in the 21st century: a place where a son will swiftly adopt an old lady and take her home from hospital to impersonate his dear departed mother, rather than lose the council flat. A time of gold...en job opportunities, though you might have to dress up as a coffee bean or work as an intern at an undertaker or put up with champagne and posh French dinners while your boss hits on you. A place rich in language - whether it's Romanian, Ukrainian, Russian, Swahili or buxom housing officers talking managementese. A place where husbands go absent without leave and councillors sacrifice cherry orchards at the altar of new builds. Marina Lewycka is back in this hilarious, farcical, tender novel of modern issues and manners.
