Interesting and amusing novella about a seriously dysfunctional family that requires outsiders to fix its glaring problems. Rather reminiscent of "The Steep Approach To Garbadale" in the portrayal of tangled family relationships. The plot is a bit far-fetched and some viewpoint shifts are a bit clunky, but perceptive and wry on the whole. A very quick read, perfect for a holiday read! ( )
