Its a game he always thinks hell win. There was his mother, a deluded snob, who made up large swathes of her past and who ran away with Richards English teacher, a Tolkien devotee, nudist and stuffed-toy collector. There was his father, a distant alcoholic, who ran through a gamut of wives, yachts and failed dreams. And there was Richard himself, a confused teenager, vulnerable to strange men, trying to find a family he could belong to. As he eventually accepted, the only way to make sense of the present was to go back to the past - but beware of what you might find there.

Truth can leave wounds - even if they are only flesh wounds.Part poignant family memoir, part rollicking venture into a 1970s Australia, this is a book for anyone whos wondered if their family is the oddest one on the planet. The answer: No. There is always something stranger out there.Sad, funny, revealing, optimistic and hopeful.

Jeanette Winterson
