Description

Everyone in Cape Cod thinks that Mother is a wonderful woman: pious, hard-working, frugal. Everyone except her husband and seven children. To them she is a selfish and petty tyrant, endlessly comparing her many living children to the one who died in childbirth, keeping a vice-like hold on her offspring even as they try to escape into adulthood. Welcome to Mother Land: a suffocating kingdom of parental narcissism.

Professional reviews

"A darkly hilarious portrait of one dysfunctional American family and its scheming matriarch, from the beloved author of The Old Patagonian Express and Hotel Honolulu. “Theroux possesses a fabulously nasty sense of humour.” STEPHEN KING “Detailed, intricate, and dark.” LIBRARY JOURNAL"
