Everyone hates the perfect family. So you’ll love the Battles. Mo is about to hit the big 50, and some uncomfortable truths are becoming quite apparent. She doesn’t understand either of her teenage kids, which for a child psychologist is fairly embarrassing. She has become grey. Inside and out. Her face has surrendered and is frightening children. Dora is about to hit the big 18 . . . and about to hit anyone who annoys her, especially her precocious younger brother Peter, who has a chronic Oscar Wilde fixation. Then there’s Dad . . . who’s just, well, Dad. A TINY BIT MARVELLOUS is the story of a modern family, all living in their own seperate bubbles, lurching towards meltdown. It is for anyone who has ever shared a home with that weird group of strangers we call relations. Oh, and there’s a dog. Called Poo ‘Funny, really enjoyable, highly recommended. A wonderful writer – witty, wise, poignant.’ Daily Mail ‘Fresh, extremely funny.’ Sunday Times ‘Very funny . . . moving, comforting, very amusing.’ Daily Mirror ‘Hilarious. Chortle-out-loud turns of phrase, razor-sharp observations.’ Stylist ‘Beautifully observed. Makes you laugh on every page and contains the funniest appraisal of smear tests that I have read.’ The Times ‘Has she cracked it with her debut novel? Yes, actually, she has. Engaging from the first page . . . It’s a new Dawn.’ Heat ‘A hilarious and compelling read.’ Good Housekeeping ‘A brilliantly observed, very funny novel of family life.’ Woman and Home
