When Lady Enid - a woman in need of a project and a husband - throws in her lot with dashing Bernard Finch, she thinks she's found her perfect life's companion. Handsome and clever, Bernard has come a long way from his small-town American roots. Now he is a man transformed, more English than the English, a celebrated lecturer on Aegean cruises. Which is where his past comes back to bite him, in the shape of his old college chum, Frankie Gleeson. Frankie has made his fortune in corn snacks and to celebrate his success he brings his wife, Nola, to cruise the Greek islands. Frankie is a simple man but he has the gift of total recall, of every detail of Bernard's early years. Yet while Bernard shuns his cruise companions, Enid finds herself strangely drawn to them. It's amazing how much can happen between Istanbul and Venice.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Laurie Graham, what a find! ... Graham's taut, colourful, slightly camp style mingles Alan Bennett with Sue Townsend - does it get better than that?' Wendy Holden, Daily Mail. * Daily Mail *
'This is high-class intrigue and heart-warming life lessons, shot through with Graham's trademark sharp humour and social observation' The Good Book Guide. * Good Book Guide *
'Quirky, unusual and lots of fun ... Full of unexpected twists, turns, and hilarious characters I really enjoyed this book. Written with gentle humour, satire and lots of fun, this is a lovely escapist book to cheer you up in the Winter' Sixty Plus Surfers. * Sixty Plus Surfers *
'Laurie Graham's grip on the art of subversive comedy is as masterful as ever' Lizzie Buchan, Sunday Times. * Sunday Times *
'At Sea is a comedy of errors that will keep the reader intrigued until the last page. I didn't want to disembark' Buzz. * Buzz *
'Every line of this wonderfully subversive, positively Wodehousian comedy is hilarious. Curiously, this is my first encounter with a Laurie Graham novel and, so cheering was it, I am overjoyed to find there is a long backlist' Carla McKay, Daily Mail. * Daily Mail *

Laurie Graham's new niovel was a delight to read.
