It is the 1980s and the Winshaw family are getting richer and crueller by the year:
Newspaper-columnist Hilary gets thousands for telling it like it isn't; Henry's turning hospitals into car parks; Roddy's selling art in return for sex; down on the farm Dorothy's squeezing every last pound from her livestock; Thomas is making a killing on the stock exchange; and Mark is selling arms to dictators.
But once their hapless biographer Michael Owen starts investigating the family's trail of greed, corruption and immoral doings, the time grows ripe for the Winshaws to receive their comeuppance . . .
'A sustained feat of humour, suspense and polemic, full of twists and ironies.' Hilary Mantel, Sunday Times
'A riveting social satire on the chattering and all-powerful upper classes.' Time Out
'Big, hilarious, intricate, furious, moving.' Guardian
