There are various narrative strands, so if you aren't gripped by one story the razing of Doro's beloved allotment by developers, perhaps, or Serge's outing as a City worker , you don't have to go back many pages to whatever is of interest — exotic CDOs, maybe, or the history of the non-communist, non-Trotskyist left. There are zany set-piece scenes, such as the vegetable-carving demonstration on Community Day, which descends into farce when carrots are thrown, people fall on top of one another and buttons pop from blouses.

Lewycka is a great humourist who made her name writing comic novels about immigrants to Britain: A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian and Two Caravans include strong characters who express themselves in entertaining hybrid English.

Various Pets Alive and Dead Review

Here, though, her characters — including Doro's adopted daughter Oolie, who has Down's syndrome — sometimes teeter towards caricature. Lewycka's sharpest observations appear when she adopts the perspective of an outsider, as when she describes, in Two Caravans , what Dover looks like to a new arrival just off the ferry: like Donetsk, in eastern Ukraine. There's not really scope for that sort of thing here.
