From Granny Catchprice, who runs her family business — and her family — with senility, cunning, and a handbag full of explosives to sixteen-year-old Benny, who dreams of transforming a failing automobile franchise into an empire — and himself into an angel — the Catchprices may be the most spectacularly contentious family since Dostoevskys Karamozovs. But when a beautiful and very pregnant agent of the Australian Taxation Office enters their lives, the resulting collision becomes, in Careys hands, masterpiece of coal-black humour and compassionate horror.
