    The Promise Of HappinessFree Shipping


    'The Promise Of Happiness' is a tour de force, an elegy to the idiocies and intricacies of family life and family love.

    Charles Judd stands peeing on small molluscs on a Cornish Beach. His wife Daphne is struggling with a Rick Stein recipe in the kitchen of a lime-washed house nearby. Their youngest daughter Sophie is hovering on the set of an advertising shoot in a studio in London. Charlie, their son, unlocks a rented Chevrolet on an Alamo lot in Buffalo-Niagara. And Juliet, their oldest child, sits in her cell, her few possessions packed, ready for release from a Federal prison in upstate New York.

    These are the Judds, formerly of London N1, now scattered but about to be thrown together again.
