Content descriptions

Participant or Performer Note: Read by Simon Vance.
Summary, etc.: Unnoticed in the uproar, George quietly begins to go mad. The way a family of damaged people fall apart - and come together - is the true subject of Haddon's hilarious and disturbing portrait of a dignified man trying to go insane politely. Once again, Haddon proves a master of a story at once hilarious, poignant, dark, and profoundly human. Here the madness - literally - of family life proves rich comic fodder for Haddon's crackling prose and bittersweet insights into misdirected love.
