The Portable VeblenBook - 2016
A laugh-out-loud love story with big ideas - and squirrels
SHORTLISTED FOR THE BAILEYS WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION 2016
Can squirrels speak? Do snails scream?
Will a young couple, newly engaged, make it to their wedding day? Will their dysfunctional families ruin everything? Will they be undone by the advances of a very sexy, very unscrupulous heiress to a pharmaceuticals corporation?
Is getting married even a remotely reasonable idea in the twenty-first century?
And what in the world is a 'Veblen' anyway?
