Description

Moira Sugden and her daughters Hazel and Linda are disunited by the self-inflicted wounds of family, and cornered by sex, God and medication into varying states of delusion. But when Hazel makes frightening discoveries about the scientific research of her gynaecologist husband, they join shaky forces against the drug called Genetic Choice. Too late however, to stop the birth of the perfect baby and its imperfect counterpart 'EGG DANCING is a comic romp with a colourful cast a zany attack on attempts to control the human mind' TLS 'A heavily satirical look at television evangelism, genetic engineering and psychotherapy, which nonetheless manages to be funny, tightly plotted and contain moments of surreal magic' HARPERS AND QUEENshow more
