Meet The Author

Esme’s bread begged to be eaten. It pleaded. It beseeched. You simply could not be in the same room as her sourdough without licking your lips and instantly realising it was exactly what you felt like eating. No, more than that. It was exactly what you had been missing.’But all is not well in the House in the Clouds. Pog’s gorgeous, garrulous, glutinous wife, Esme, is not her usual self. Her attempts at avoiding what’s really troubling her is affecting everyone in the family, including her irascible father-in-law Henry and the mad assortment of animals they keep acquiring. What can a desperate, devoted husband do, except wait for the mayhem to abate?This latest offering from the pen of well-known columnist Sarah-Kate Lynch has her trademark humour and bizarre array of characters but also a new poignancy, which is as deeply moving as it is unexpected.
