Bought in Brampton, Carlisle while working at the CNDR, i've been thinking about getting this book for ages, mainly because i like the cover so much and the title is really quirky. This book was Winner of the Bollinger Everyman Prize for comic fiction. Will read and release soon.

Thought this was a great book. Easy to read, engaging, likeable characters and well written. The story deals with Nadia, Vera and their wayward Papa (author of the eponymous tractor book) as he deals with the death of their mother and then decides to accquire a young wife from the Ukraine. The arrival of the pneumatically breasted Valentina (part Valkyrie part 60's sex siren) throws the family into chaos and brings to light a lot of forgotten family history. Not laugh out loud funny but definately a good book to settle down with on a rainy afternoon.

Another 1001 book ticked off the list.
Now available to a good home upon request!

Well, the book was rescued in the visitors entrance of Chester Cathedral. Seeing it prompted me to pick it up because it seemed an add part of the cathedral reception literature. I had heard of Bookcrossing and was delighted to have been given the opportunity to pass a bok on.
