“This book is like walking backwards down a foreign street with your eyes closed, feeling equally liberated and ridiculous. Set in 1940s New York and Panama, eccentric Miss Goering and neurotic Mrs Cooperfield guide you through a cult classic so unconsciously hilarious, shockingly absurd, and before its time that it will make you laugh our loud and question everything.” Mikayli

‘I am going on a trip. Wait until I tell you about it. it’s terrible.’ Miss Goering, an eccentric, impulsive New York heiress, resides in her house and tries not to be unhappy. Mrs Copperfield, an anxious, dutiful married woman, has a great fear of drowning, of lifts, of intruders in the night. Two serious ladies, nothing is natural for them and anything is possible. For Mrs Copperfield – a trip to Panama, where she abandons her husband for love of a local prostitute. For Miss Goering – a move to a squalid little house on an island and a series of sordid encounters with strangers. Both go to pieces -and both realise this is something they’ve wanted to do for years. With an introduction by Naoise Dolan.
