SHORTLISTED FOR THE BOLLINGER EVERYMAN WODEHOUSE PRIZE: AS IF THE ROYLE FAMILY WERE WRITTEN BY MARTIN AMIS

'Vibrant tragicomic slices of cosmopolitan Englishness' Independent on Sunday
'May well be his masterpiece . . . a rich and compelling drama of life' Daily Mail
'Virtuosic farce and razor-edged comedy of manners' Independent

Jim and Milly. Stan and Jane. Jonathan and Fiona. Winter, 1959.

Three married couples: each living in England's Lane, each with an only child, and each attending to family, and their livelihoods - the ironmonger, the sweetshop and the butcher.

Each of them hiding their lies, coping in the only way they know how.

'He remains essentially a comic novelist, but one whose work has its dark, even sinister side . . . There is no other novelist today who writes quite like Connolly' Scotsman
