Erin Britton


Possibly the funniest novel of the decade' Sunday Times, Books of the Decade 2010-2019 Solomon Kugel has had enough of the past and its burdens. So, in the hope of starting afresh, he moved his family to a small rural town where nothing of import has ever happened. Sadly, Kugel's life isn't that simple. His family soon find themselves threatened by a local arsonist and his ailing mother won't stop reminiscing about the Nazi concentration camps she didn't actually suffer through. And when, one night, Kugel discovers a living, breathing, thought-to-be-dead specimen of history hiding in his attic, bad very quickly becomes worse. 'The humour, at times can leave you gasping . . . comic brilliance' Sunday Times 'Singularly inventive and superbly shocking . . . nothing short of genius' Scotland on Sunday 'He will make you laugh until your heart breaks' New York Times Book Review
