Description

It is 2029: the Mandibles have been counting on a sizable fortune filtering down when their 97-year-old patriarch dies. Yet America’s soaring national debt has grown so enormous that it can never be repaid. The dollar is in meltdown. A bloodless world war will wipe out the savings of millions of American families. Their inheritance turned to ash, each family member must contend with disappointment, but also – as the effects of the downturn start to hit – the challenge of sheer survival.

Professional reviews

"The brilliant new novel from the Orange Prize-winning author of We Need to Talk about Kevin. “Shriver’s intelligence, mordant humour and vicious leaps of imagination all combine to make this a novel that is as unsettling as it is entertaining.” FINANCIAL TIMES “All too chillingly plausible […] a profoundly frightening portrait of how quickly the agreed rules of society can fall apart without money to grease the wheels.” OBSERVER"
