Deborah Moggach - The Carer - Book Talk

GRANGE COURT, Herefordshire, HR6 8NL
Sat 13th July 2019 7:00PM

Deborah Moggach, bestselling author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Tulip Fever, will talk about her new novel - a deliciously funny, poignant and wry novel, full of surprising twists and turns. 

The Carer: 
James is getting on a bit and needs full-time help. So Phoebe and Robert, his middle-aged offspring, employ Mandy, who seems willing to take him off their hands. But as James regales his family with tales of Mandy’s virtues, their shopping trips, and the shared pleasure of their journeys to garden centres, Phoebe and Robert sense something is amiss. Is this really their father, the distant figure who never once turned up for a sports day, now happily chortling over cuckoo clocks and television soaps? 
 Then something happens that throws everything into new relief, and Phoebe and Robert discover that life most definitely does not stop for the elderly. It just moves onto a very different plane – changing all the stories they thought they knew so well.

Deborah Moggach, OBE is an English novelist and an award-winning screenwriter. She has written nineteen novels, including The Ex-Wives, Tulip Fever, These Foolish Thing, Heartbreak Hotel and Something to Hide. She lives near Leominster.
