Publisher Description

The hilarious new novel from the bestselling author of A Spool of Blue Thread

'A thoroughly modern love story' Guardian, Books of the Year

Kate Battista is stuck. How did she end up running house and home for her eccentric scientist father and infuriating younger sister Bunny?

Dr Battista has other problems. His brilliant young lab assistant, Pyotr, is about to be deported. And without Pyotr, his new scientific breakthrough will fall through...

When Dr Battista cooks up an outrageous plan that will enable Pyotr to stay in the country, he's relying - as usual - on Kate to help him. Will Kate be able to resist the two men's touchingly ludicrous campaign to win her round?

Anne Tyler's brilliant retelling of The Taming of the Shrew asks whether a thoroughly modern woman like Kate would ever sacrifice herself for a man. The answer is as surprising as Kate herself.

Review

Delightful, ingenious and convincing... Anyone who values good writing and the intelligent observation and depiction of how people feel, think and speak will enjoy it too -- Allan Massie Scotsman Funny, thought-provoking, essential The Sunday Telegraph (Stella) It's every subtle shade of funny, heart-breaking and ultimately life-affirming Grazia The worst wedding in history ... vintage Anne Tyler -- Ann Treneman The Times It's knockabout comedy at its best, genuinely laugh-out-loud funny and, indeed, may be her funniest book to date -- John Harding Daily Mail
