Item:283534016995FREE SHIPPING UK WIDE The Carer by Deborah Moggach From the bestselling author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Tulip Fever, a deliciously waspish, witty and poignant novel of age, sibling rivalry and having to grow up - at last. FORMAT Paperback LANGUAGE English CONDITION Brand New Publisher Description Unputdownable, fun and tender with characters that jump off the page. Perfection - Marian KeyesJames is getting on a bit and needs full-time help. So Phoebe and Robert, his middle-aged offspring, employ Mandy, who seems willing to take him off their hands. But as James regales his family with tales of Mandys virtues, their shopping trips, and the shared pleasure of their journeys to garden centres, Phoebe and Robert sense something is amiss. Is this really their father, the distant figure who never once turned up for a sports day, now happily chortling over cuckoo clocks and television soaps? Then something happens that throws everything into new relief, and Phoebe and Robert discover that life most definitely does not stop for the elderly. It just moves onto a very different plane - changing all the stories they thought they knew so well. Author Biography Deborah Moggach, OBE is an English novelist and an award-winning screenwriter. She has written nineteen novels, including The Ex-Wives, Tulip Fever, These Foolish Thing, Heartbreak Hotel and Something to Hide. She lives in Wales. Review Unputdownable, fun and tender with characters that jump off the page. PerfectionI just loved it - so touching and wise and funny, full of all the lovely touches that Debby is so good at. She draws characters so deftly; you begin to think you know them from the smallest of observations. Theyre all so human!The Carer will ring bells for any reader with parents reaching the grab-rail stage of life but proves as touching as its funny. Moggach writes in the best funny-ouch tradition, her humour always rooted in acute observation of our frailties and appetitesDeborah Moggachs warm heart and cool eye for hilarious British idiosyncrasies are both on top form here - I laughed like a drain.
