Publisher's Summary

A group of hapless broke young people, struggling to get a break in life on the run-up to Brexit & Trump, collide with their well-heeled elders (who really ought to know better), at a notorious 'party' (yes we all know what that means) in a mysterious mansion one rainy night in London. Enter: quixotic well-intentioned soak, Carnaval, who reels amiably between the two generations and complicates things to comical and touching effect. A gentle closely observed tale populated with a rogue's gallery of memorable characters and a stand-out performance by London itself. A shot across the bows: a comedy of manners and a timely coming-of-age satire. Mind the Generation Gap!

Carnaval

The younger and the older generation. They both have their own side to explain and depend. A very interesting audio book to listen to.

British story

Any additional comments?

This is an intense story which takes place in England, While sex is mentioned, it is not at all explicit. I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

This is a story about a British dysfunctional family and their colleagues. Appearances, power, and money rule. This is not a book to have on in the background because you will miss important details. The story builds slowly and deliberately. A very intriguing tale is told where the power and money transfers from the haves to the have nots. A very satisfying listen!
