Descripción del libro MOTHER LAND y sinopsis completa

Totally hilarious............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Like watching an accident in slow motion.

A portrait of an American family and its diabolical matriarch - by one of America's most acclaimed writers All in Cape Cod think Mother is a wonderful woman: pious, hardworking, frugal.

All except her husband and seven children.

For them it is a selfish and petty tyrant, who endlessly compares her many living children with the one who died in childbirth, and who keeps her offspring in captivity even as they try to escape into adulthood.

Welcome to Mother Earth: a suffocating realm of paternal narcissism.

This is a passionate, hilarious and heartbreaking portrait of a modern family: the arguments, the conspiracies and the impulse to overcome the painful ties that bind it together.

Brilliantly depicts characters in sharp, thorny prose' Guardian 'Gracious and wonderfully evil' Saturday review 'Family dynamics have become exceptionally good' Herald
