Product description

With only a schizophrenic mother and a militantly hostile sister for backup, Hazel Sugden, food-splattered mum and queen of low self-esteem, is palpably unfit to save the future of mankind as we know it. But, when embryology, psychiatry and religion clash over the miracle designer drug Genetic Choice, the dysfunctional trio are propelled into action with explosively comic results.

Review quote

'One preposterous event succeeds another in this ingenious and entertaining cautionary tale' The Times 'An assured, hilarious and insightful novel ... propelled along by the comic rhythm of the writing, you're carried on a crazy journey you won't be sorry you took' Time Out 'Entertaining ... with a wickedly black sense of humour' Observer 'Wonderfully dark ... a real page-turner, not for the squeamish' Helen Lederer
