'There are two things that you should know about me immediately- the first is that I am beautiful, the second is that yesterday I killed a man. Both things were accidents . . .' When Midlands housewife Coventry Dakin kills her neighbour in a wild bid to prevent him from strangling his wife, she goes on the run. Finding herself alone and friendless in London she tries to lose herself in the city's maze of streets. There, she meets a bewildering cast of eccentric characters. From Professor Willoughby D'Eresby and his perpetually naked wife Letitia to Dodo, a care-in the-community inhabitant of Cardboard City, all of whom contrive to change Coventry in ways she could never have foreseen . . . Rebuilding Coventry is a brilliant, laugh-out-loud satire on modern Britain and the unfinished battle of the sexes. 'Splendidly witty . . . the social observations sharp and imaginative.' Sunday Express 'Nasty, naughty, funny, brash. I found this swift novel a delight.' Joseph Heller 'A satire in the best, Johnsonian tradition, with nothing and no one spared.' New Statesman www.suetownsend.com
