You live in rural bliss, you've got a great job in town, and he's crazy about you. The only problem is, he's six years old. Most people would think Annie Baker had it all: an idyllic life in the country and a great job in town as a film producer. And so would she, if it weren't for the men in her life. Her son Charlie gets traumatised if she buys the wrong kind of sausages. Her tempestuous boss Barney is a Great Director, but keeps getting stuck with dog food commercials, and as for Laurence, well, he just wants to get her fired. And then she meets Mack Funny, heartbreaking, truthful and uplifting, Gil McNeil's brilliant novel will make you cry and laugh out loud.
