Rate & Review

Everyone in Cape Cod thinks that Mother is a wonderful woman: pious, hard-working, frugal. Everyone except her husband and seven children. To them she is a selfish and petty tyrant, endlessly comparing her many living children to the one who died in childbirth, keeping a vice-like hold on her offspring even as they try to escape into adulthood. Welcome to Mother Land: a suffocating kingdom of parental narcissism.

A darkly hilarious portrait of one dysfunctional American family and its scheming matriarch, from the beloved author of The Old Patagonian Express and Hotel Honolulu. “Theroux possesses a fabulously nasty sense of humour.” STEPHEN KING “Detailed, intricate, and dark.” LIBRARY JOURNAL
