Everyone hates the perfect family. So you’ll love the Battles.
Mo is about to hit the big 50, and some uncomfortable truths are becoming quite apparent: She doesn’t understand either of her teenage kids, which as a child psychologist, is fairly embarrassing. She has become entirely grey - inside, and out. Her face has surrendered and is frightening children.
Dora is about to hit the big 18... and about to hit anyone who annoys her, especially her precocious younger brother, Peter, who has a chronic Oscar Wilde fixation.
Then there’s Dad, who’s just, well, Dad.
This is the story of a modern family, all living in their own separate bubbles and lurching towards meltdown. It is for anyone who has ever shared a home with that weird group of strangers we call relations.
Oh, and there’s a dog. Called Poo.
