Beschreibung zu „The Square“
'…quirky and a keenly observant novel… and real fun too!'
-Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, The Independent
Jane has the ideal life: loving husband, beautiful house and delightful son. Her fashionable dinner parties are perfect - and so are her secret assignations with her neighbour's husband, Jay.
From Tracey and her ‘New Money’ lottery winnings to eccentric artist Philip and his pornographic portraits, the residents of North London's most privileged enclave The Square are a very satisfied bunch.
To raise money for communal fencing, the Residents' Association decides to hold a Talent Show, produced by Jane and hosted by TV celebrity Alan Makin. But when the show lurches into public disarray, reputations are shattered and everyone has to learn to live with a far less glossy reality than before.
'...hilariously observed… a much-welcomed comedy of manners.'
Jane Green, New York Times Bestselling author
'Pin-sharp and wickedly funny... a very timely satire...'
Adam Foulds, Granta Best of Young British Novelists
'A waspish portrait shot through with wit, insight and buckets of glorious bonking.'
