DESCRIPTION :
A laugh-out-loud love story with big ideas - and squirrels

SHORTLISTED FOR THE BAILEYS WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION 2016

Can squirrels speak? Do snails scream?

Will a young couple, newly engaged, make it to their wedding day? Will their dysfunctional families ruin everything? Will they be undone by the advances of a very sexy, very unscrupulous heiress to a pharmaceuticals corporation?

Is getting married even a remotely reasonable idea in the twenty-first century?

And what in the world is a `Veblen' anyway?

`Raw and weird and hilarious'

Guardian

`A touching, wildly funny and peculiarly elegant look at the travails of love of all kinds' Sunday Express

`Elizabeth McKenzie is clearly some sort of genius' Paul Murray

`I can't remember a book I enjoyed more' Nina Stibbe

`Seriously funny and extraordinarily well written' Jonathan Franzen, Guardian books of the year
