Publisher's Summary

A Radio 4 Book Club Selection.

Newspaper columnist Hilary gets thousands for telling it like it is; Henry's turning hospitals into carparks; Roddy's selling art in return for sex; down on the farm Dorothy's squeezing every last pound from her livestock; Thomas is making a killing on the stock exchange; and Mark is selling arms to dictators.

In fact the Winshaw family are getting richer and crueller by the day. But once Jonathan Coe's eccentric narrator Michael Owen uncovers their trail of greed, corruption, and immoral doings throughout the '80s, the time seems ripe for their comeuppance.
