A Spot of Bother

A Spot of Bother

A Spot of BotherĀ is Mark Haddon's unforgettable follow-up to the internationally beloved bestsellerĀ The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. At sixty-one, George Hall is settling down to a comfortable retirement. When his tempestuous daughter, Katie, announces that she is getting married to the deeply inappropriate Ray, the Hall family is thrown into a tizzy. Unnoticed in the uproar, George discovers a sinister lesion on his hip, and quietly begins to lose his mind. As parents and children fall apart and come together, Haddon paints a disturbing yet amusing portrait of a dignified man trying to go insane politely. A Washington Post Best Book of the Year
