Synopsis

The hilarious new novel from the bestselling author of A Spool of Blue Thread



'A thoroughly modern love story' Guardian, Books of the Year





Kate Battista is stuck. How did she end up running house and home for her eccentric scientist father and infuriating younger sister Bunny?



Dr Battista has other problems. His brilliant young lab assistant, Pyotr, is about to be deported. And without Pyotr, his new scientific breakthrough will fall through...



When Dr Battista cooks up an outrageous plan that will enable Pyotr to stay in the country, he's relying - as usual - on Kate to help him. Will Kate be able to resist the two men's touchingly ludicrous campaign to win her round?



Anne Tyler's brilliant retelling of The Taming of the Shrew asks whether a thoroughly modern woman like Kate would ever sacrifice herself for a man. The answer is as surprising as Kate herself.
