A Tiny Bit Marvellous




The chart-topping, million-copy-selling comedian's provocative first novel

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 as a child psychologist, is fairly embarrassing.

She has become entirely grey. Inside, and out.

Her face has surrendered and is frightening children.

Dorais about to hit the big 18 . . . and about to hit anyone who annoysher, especially her precocious younger brother Peter who has a chronicOscar Wilde fixation.

Then there's Dad . . . who's just, well, dad.

ATINY BIT MARVELLOUS is the story of a modern family all living in theirown separate bubbles lurching towards meltdown. It is for anyone whohas ever shared a home with that weird group of strangers we callrelations.

Oh and there's a dog. Called Poo.
