We Are All Made of Glue
Author: Marina Lewycka

ISBN: 9781905490615
Format: Paperback
Number Of Pages: 419
Published: 1 October 2009
Georgie Sinclair's husband has left her; her sixteen-year-old son is busy exploring fundamentalist Christian websites and becoming more distant by the day; and all those overdue articles for Adhesives in the Modern World aren't looking too appealing either.

So when she spots Mrs Shapiro, an eccentric old Jewish neighbour with an eye for a bargain and a fondness for matchmaking, rummaging through her skip in the middle of the night, it's just the distraction she needs.

And although they mistrust each other at first - Georgie doesn't like the look of that past-its-sell-by-date fish while Mrs Shapiro thinks it's prize produce - a firm friendship is formed over the reduced-price shelf at the supermarket.

So when two slimy rival estate agents (one with a taste for bondage) start competing to trick Mrs Shapiro into selling her rickety old mansion, home also to seven stinky cats, Georgie must step in and help her new friend. Along the way she uncovers the long buried mysteries of Mrs Shapiro's past!
