A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian; Marina Lewycka; Penguin 2006
Can’t be bothered to write a summary of this one. There are plenty of those online. All I can say is, it’s a good read, one of those you can’t let down. The narration is very personal, and I suspect there is a lot of the authoress in both of the sisters’ characters, Nadia and Vera. These two have to prevent their father, a widower, from marrying a Ukrainian tart around 35 years his junior, who is evidently in it for British citizenship, and in return she lets her new found love fondle her breasts.
Can’t be bothered to erase that first sentence.
