Synopsis

A laugh-out-loud love story with big ideas - and squirrelsSHORTLISTED 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
