The Redemption of George Baxter Henry

The Redemption of George Baxter Henry

(2011)
A novel by

 
George Baxter Henry is having an affair and has been found out by his mother-in-law, Muriel; a ninety-one-year-old former silent screen star who now can t keep her mouth shut! With a son (Billy) who is being wooed by a record company, and a daughter (Iska) who is writing a book about apples, the Henry family decamp to a village in France to sort themselves out.
George and his wife Pearl both want to save their marriage, but for different reasons. Billy sees the world through cocaine-tinted eyelids. Iska is growing up and discovering other fruit. Muriel is sharp and bitter and seems reluctant to get to the great cinema in the sky.
In the background lurk the shadows of George's further infidelities, and distant lineage leading to Graceland. Up front it's a battleground; where the weapons of choice are vitriol, one-liners and old age. The spoils of war are sanity, and redemption!
