Whirligig is a raucous, joyous, often poignant comedy about the redemptive power of the countryside. Written with peerless wit, it's a timely fable that takes its place within the tradition of the Great English Comic Novel. It's The Wicker Man as told by P.G. Wodehouse.

Review quote

Whirligig has an impressively immersive sense of wry, often brilliantly dark involvement. Its voice is strong and clear and fresh and rousing. Like a bagpipe.
