I read this book by Marina Lewycka a few years ago and thought it was so so. I liked the title and found the synopsis quite interesting, but somehow it didn’t live up to my expectations. What drew me to the book in the first place was the retro style of the cover (which was continued with “Two Caravans” and “We are all made of glue”).
It seems the Germans liked the cover since they kept it, apart from that second one which is a book club edition. The same with the title which is a literal translation of the original one.
