Take a dilapidated castle in the Scottish Highlands; add a peacock gone rogue, a group of bankers on a teambuilding trip, an overwhelmed psychologist, a housekeeper with a broken arm, and an ingenious cook; get Lord and Lady McIntosh to try and keep it all together; and top it off with all sorts of animals - soon no one will know exactly what's going on.
Selling 500,000 copies, Isabel Bogdan's book is a big hitter in Germany - and now it's coming home to roost.
'A great blend of entertainment and sophisticated literature.'
Julia Westlake, NDR Bücherjournal
'A colossal pleasure for anyone who appreciates subtle irony.'
'Isabel Bogdan's debut novel transports you into the kind of buoyant jollity only ABBA songs can achieve otherwise. That's down to the casual but polished language. And the wonderful cast.'
'The Hamburg-based writer draws her characters and situations with such skill, you have to say: This is British humour.'
'Isabel Bogdan has created a merry band of unforgettable characters reminiscent of John Cleese and Fawlty Towers. And her tight style produces irony worthy of comparison with authors such as Alan Bennett.'
Hamburg Emerging Writers' Prize Jury
'British humour made in Germany - delightful.'
