Paradise Lodge

£8.99

This is the story of Lizzie Vogel, a 15 year old girl who finds herself working in an old people’s home in the 1970s. The place is in chaos and it’s not really a suitable job for a schoolgirl: she’d only gone for the job because it seemed too exhausting to commit to being a full-time girlfriend or a punk, and she doesn’t realise there’s a right and a wrong way to get someone out of a bath.

Description

Lizzie Vogel’s story continues in Paradise Lodge, the brilliantly comic sequel to Nina Stibbe’s hilarious Man at the Helm.

‘LOVE it! Instant classic – funny, wise, touching, entirely delightful’ MARIAN KEYES

*****

Working in a care home is not really a suitable job for a schoolgirl but 15-year-old Lizzie Vogel went for it. It just seemed too exhausting to commit to being a full-time girlfriend or a punk (it is the 1970s after all), plus she has some knowledge of old people. They’re not suited to granary bread, and you mustn’t compare them to toddlers, but she doesn’t know there’s a right way to get someone out of the bath – or what to do when someone dies.

When a rival old people’s home with better parking and daily chairobics threatens to take all their residents, Paradise Lodge’s cast of staff and helpers have to come together to save the home before it’s too late.

From the bestselling author of Love, Nina comes a story of being very young, and very old, and the laughter and tears in between.

‘Stibbe looks at another chapter of her life through the prism of her trademark deadpan, acutely observed humour’ STYLIST
