Every Day Is Mother's Day (Paperback)Hilary Mantel (author)
- In stock online
From the author of the Man Booker prize-winners `Wolf Hall' and `Bring Up the Bodies' comes a story of suburban mayhem and merciless, hilarious revenge.
Barricaded inside their house filled with festering rubbish, unhealthy smells and their secrets, the Axon family baffle Isabel Field, the latest in a long line of social workers.
Isabel has other problems too: a randy, untrustworthy father and a slackly romantic lover, Colin Sidney, history teacher to unresponsive yobs and father of a parcel of horrible children. With all this to worry about, how can Isabel begin to understand what is going on in the Axon household?
