Description

"beautifully encapsulates what love is" Kirkus Reviews

After ten years together, including some difficult times, Adam and Eva are still as in love as they were when they told each other every day that they loved each other every day more.

All-round adorable Adam - adopted, mixed-race, with a deep social conscience that he shares with his wife - claims to have no issues other than having no issues. Raised by remarkable parents, he has grown up happy and grounded, uninterested in his "other parents" or in why they might have had to give him up.

Having lost her father at fifteen, and still suffering a terrible relationship with "mother", Eva has more issues than she cares to admit, and it falls to an unexpected visit by two policemen to uncover a secret she has kept from her husband since the first day they met.

With the past at last explained, and the worst of it now apparently behind them, today has been a day of good news, which Eva is looking forward to sharing with the friends who have invited them to dinner. But their hosts seem to have very different plans for the evening, and the air is thick with tension as gradually the reason for their invitation begins to come out...
Its satirical humor sometimes black and irreverent, POLK, HARPER & WHO is a contemporary tale of complex family relationships, of lifelong friendships being put to the test, and ultimately of the triumph of imperfect London love within imperfect London lives.

"the language, the cleverness, the juxtaposition of heartbreak and humor and the presence of truly hilariously drawn characters is at least half the pleasure of reading the book" Casey Dorman - Lost Coast Review

"A thoughtful, observant, and often humorous tale about real connections." Kirkus Reviews
