About this product
- DescriptionThe bestselling author of A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian is back with an ?effervescent comedy? (The New Yorker) The follow up to her hugely popular first vel presents a Canterbury Tales?inspired picaresque that is also a biting satire of ecomic exploitation. When a ragtag international crew of migrant workers is forced to flee the strawberry fields they have been working in, they set off across England looking for employment. Displaying the same sense of compassion, social outrage, and gift for hilarity that she showed in A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian, Marina Lewycka chronicles their bumpy road trip with a tender affection for her downtrodden characters and their search for a taste of the good life.
- Author BiographyMarina Lewycka was born of Ukrainian parents in a refugee camp at the end of World War II and grew up in England. In the course of researching her family roots for this novel, she uncovered no fewer than three long-lost relatives.
