Happy Eva After

'A warm and lovely novel about the grammar of modern life'

Happy Eva After is a sparkling social comedy starring Sebastian Pink, an English teacher at the language college equivalent of Fawlty Towers.

Unsure if he wants to start a family with his workaholic wife Sarah, whose biological clock is ticking like a time bomb, Sebastian spends more time guiding his pupils through the perils of the English language, deciphering cryptic crosswords, conversing with his dog, Claude, and patronising the local pub with his bitter but delightfully twisted colleague and drinking partner, Walter.

When Sebastian's already madcap classroom is turned upside down by the arrival of Eva, an alluring Czech au pair, he finds himself embroiled in a sordid suburban tangle, proving the adage that 'a little learning is a dangerous thing'.

Happy Eva After is a seriously funny novel about a man, a marriage and an intriguing young woman whose secret past will influence everyone's future.
