According to Yes

by Dawn French

According to Yes Synopsis

Dawn French, number one bestselling author of A Tiny Bit Marvellous and Oh Dear Silvia, returns with her joyously funny new novel, According To Yes. The Foreign Land of the Very Wealthy - otherwise known as Manhattan's Upper East Side - has its own rigid code of behaviour. It's a code strictly adhered to by the Wilder-Bingham family. Emotional displays - unacceptable. Unruly behaviour - definitely not welcome. Fun - no thanks. This is Glenn Wilder-Bingham's kingdom. A beautifully displayed impeccably edited fortress of restraint. So when Rosie Kitto, an eccentric thirty-eight-year-old primary school teacher from England, bounces into their lives with a secret sorrow and a heart as big as the city, nobody realises that she hasn't read the rule book. For the Wilder-Bingham family, whose lives begin to unravel thread by thread, the consequences are explosive. Because after a lifetime of saying no, what happens when everyone decides to start saying . . . yes? Praise for Dawn French: 'A fantastic slam-dunk pageturner. Funny, enriching . . . page after page I laughed out loud' Mail on Sunday 'A hilarious snapshot of family life in the twenty-first century' Sunday Express 'Extremely funny' Sunday Times 'Dawn tackles the big ones - love, death, grief, childhood, motherhood, parenthood - head on' Guardian 'Makes you laugh on every page' The Times 'A brilliantly observed, very funny novel of family life' Woman and Home 'Funny, really enjoyable, highly recommended. A wonderful writer - witty, wise, poignant' Daily Mail
