Description

A LAUGH-OUT-LOUD NOVEL FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF A SHORT HISTORY OF TRACTORS IN UKRAINIAN

After walking out on his wife to shack up with ‘Brexit Brenda’ next door, George Pantis thinks he’s got it made – especially when he wins millions on a Kosovan lottery he barely remembers entering.

Unfortunately, he can’t access the money because he’s forgotten his password. What is he meant to tell all the forceful people who keep appearing at his doorstep desperate to know his mother’s maiden name?

The situation is shadier than he thinks, and George is need of rescue. But will his dysfunctional family be able to save him, and in the process, can they save each other?
