26 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

North London in the twenty-first century: a place where a son will swiftly adopt an old lady and take her home from hospital to impersonate his dear departed mother, rather than lose the council flat. A time of golden job opportunities, though you might have to dress up as a coffee bean or work as an intern at an undertaker or put up with champagne and posh French dinners while your boss hits on you. A place rich in language - whether it's Romanian, Ukrainian, Russian, Swahili or buxom housing officers talking managementese. A place where husbands go absent without leave and councillors sacrifice cherry orchards at the altar of new builds

A beautiful summer's evening in a Kent field and around their two caravans a group of strawberry pickers celebrates a birthday. But what lies behind the buy-one-get-one-free offers at your supermarket and who picks our strawberries?

And although he can't pick strawberries, there's also the Dog. Hilarious, gritty, moving and slapstick, Two Caravans has all the ingredients that made A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian so successful

Georgie Sinclair's husband has left her ; her sixteen-year-old son is busy exploring fundamentalist Christian websites and becoming more distant by the day ; and all those overdue articles for Adhesives in the Modern World aren't looking too appealing either. So when she spots Mrs Shapiro, an eccentric old Jewish emigré neighbour with an eye for a bargain and a fondness for matchmaking, rummaging through her skip in the middle of the night, it's just the distraction she needs. And although they mistrust each other at first a firm friendship is formed over the reduced-price shelf at the supermarket. So when two slimy rival estate agents start competing to trick Mrs Shapiro into selling her rickety old mansion, Georgie must step in and help her new friend.

Georgie Sinclair steht vor einem Scherbenhaufen: Die Ehe mit ihrem Mann geht in die Brüche, ihr halbwüchsiger Sohn ist fasziniert von Weltuntergangs-Websites, und ihren Job bei der Fachzeitschrift "Klebstoff" findet sie auch nur bedingt interessant.

Denn zuallererst, so sagt sie, braucht Georgie einen neuen Mann, und Mrs Shapiro streckt gekonnt ihre erfahrenen Fühler aus. (Laufzeit: 5h 04)
