Product Description

Review

‘Witty, romantic and irreverent… Inventive, funny and affecting, this is a story that is powerful without being mawkish.’ Daily Mail

'Along with her whip-cracking dialogue, it is quirky images that are Murray's forte … throwing the freewheeeling antics of the Happys into hilarious relief.' The Observer

'Murray manages to counterpoint beautifully the loveless, the perverse and even the wicked with all that is tender and true in human relationships.' Zoe Strimpel, Time Out

‘Woody Allen visits Cold Comfort Farm.’ Boyd Tonkin, Independent

--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
A fantastic and funny book. Kate Happy's story, part Jane Eyre and part Paper Moon really did make me laugh out loud and then cry. A lovely read. The critics must be right. I'd thoroughly advise reading it.

A Refreshingly Unique & Witty Novel Nov. 8 2004
By T. Pagel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This witty novel, with a unique voice and characters had me laughing out loud from the first page. The author evokes the spirit of her characters, with blatancy and biting humor. I highly recommend.
