Dawn French, number one bestselling author of A Tiny Bit Marvellous returns with Oh Dear Silvia. Everyone knows the real Silvia, don't they? Silvia Shute lies in hospital in a coma. Family and friends gather at her bedside, each thinking they know the real Silvia. But do they? For Silvia hides a secret. One she can never tell. And as her visitors congregate so the truth about Silvia is slowly revealed. Again, and again and again...Oh Dear Silvia is the brand new novel from one of Britain's most loved comic writers and the number one bestselling author of A Tiny Bit Marvellous. "Hilarious. My top book..." (The Times). "Side-splitting, darkly humorous." (Heat). "Written with serious intent, both literary and thematically: Dawn tackles the big ones - love, death, grief, childhood, motherhood, parenthood - head on." (Guardian).
