Daniel Connah’s mother is dead. Thank God.
But there’s a problem. Who’s going to explain why the fifty-year-old journalist is a misfit, addicted to sex and steals − among other character flaws?
His domineering mother, Muriel, might be accountable. But that lets his emotionally distant father, Jim, off the hook. Or did his criminally inclined brother and sisters lead him astray?
Then there’s Daniel. Is he to blame? Or was he just caught in the crossfire between warring parents?
At the core of this darkly comic story about family dynamics and what makes us who we are, is whether Muriel loved Daniel. Otherwise, what chance has he got of loving himself or anyone else?
