“A sharply witty tale about greed and need centred on the Plumb family. They are as endearing as they are dysfunctional.” Ann
When black sheep Leo has a costly car accident, the Plumb siblings’ much-anticipated inheritance is suddenly wiped out. His brother and sisters come together and form a plan to get back what is owed them – each grappling with their own financial and emotional turmoil from the fallout. As `the nest’ fades further from view, they must decide whether they will build their lives anew, or fight to regain the futures they had planned. Ferociously astute, warm and funny, The Nest is a brilliant debut chronicling the hilarity and savagery of family life.
`A masterfully constructed, darkly comic, and immensely captivating tale…Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney is a real talent’ Elizabeth Gilbert.
