A NOVELLA BY KEVIN  ALLARDICE

At a sprawling urban farm in the hills above Berkeley, a woman’s attempt to give a birthday present to her four-year-old nephew erupts into an epic quest, increasingly nightmarish and violent, to survive our deepest cultural chasms. A wickedly funny satire of parenting and privilege, sex and politics, set in the shadow of civil unrest.

BUY THE BOOK:

“Kevin Allardice harnesses his great powers of description and ingenious sense of narrative for this viciously funny satire. Laurence Sterne would have been proud to call Mr. Allardice a descendant.”
