Summary
Unnoticed in the uproar, George quietly begins to go mad. The way a family of damaged people fall apart - and come together - is the true subject of Haddon's hilarious and disturbing portrait of a dignified man trying to go insane politely
Summary
George Hall is an unobtrusive man. A little distant, perhaps, a little cautious, not quite at ease with the emotional demands of fatherhood or of manly bonhomie. "The secret of contentment, George felt, lay in ignoring many things completely." Some things in life can't be ignored, however: his tempestuous daughter Katie's deeply inappropriate boyfriend Ray, for instance, or the sudden appearance of a red circular rash on his hip
