About this product
- DescriptionThe winner of the Alan Titchmarsh 'People's Author' national competition tells of the travails of family life with wit and warmth. 'I gaze down and see your garden, the gate hanging off its hinges, the mess, your children running around half naked like little street urchins. It spoils the view entirely' When single mother Nicola Hodgkinson decided to follow her rural dream, it involved transporting her young family - three rowdy children, her beloved horse, a wilful donkey and two single-minded bantams - to a ramshackle cottage in an idyllic seaside village. The family soon attracts the horrified attention of sey neighbours, and anys motorists by hogging country lanes with a horse-drawn caravan. But amid the chaos, the magic of family life shines through, peppered with humour, love, moments of high drama, and stalgia. LIFE WITH THE LID OFF is a brilliant, profound and funny evocation of a universal theme: how to find yourself again amongst the hurly burly of family life.
- Author BiographyNicola Hodgkinson is the winner of THE PEOPLE'S AUTHOR national writing competition as featured on The Alan Titchmarsh Show. She lives with a menagerie of animals in Suffolk, where she writes in her shed.
