Muck: A Memoir by Craig Sherborne, 1st Ed

$9.99

With their only son on the brink of adolescence, the nouveaux-riches Sherbornes move away from the city to start a new, gentrified existence on a 300-acre farm- or 'estate'- in Taonga, New Zealand. But life on the farm is anything but wholesome. Sherborne evokes his family's slide into madness and misery through a series of unforgettable, hilarious portraits: of 'Feet', his once glamorous mother, now addled with snobbery, paranoia and mental illness; of 'The Duke', his weakly uncomprehending, sporadically violent father; and of himself, the 'Lord Muck' of the title, at once helpless victim and ruthless agent of their undoing.

Paperback published in 2007. 1st Ed, 1st printing. Copy in VGC, very light edge wear and creasing, crisp and clean throughout. Handsome copy.
