A disappointing second novel from the author of A short history of tractors in the Ukraine, which was one of our book club selections last year. This was hard slogging all the way...I'd pass if I were you...

At first this book was a good laugh, especially when the author uses dialogue using an immigrant's mother-tongue phrase -- e.g. "Devil's bum." After a while, one realizes that the author is exposing the rotten side of the life of immigrants to England, and how they're taken advantage of. The author connects one of her characters from "A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian."
