Book DescriptionGabriella lives in a damp, ramshackle, book-strewn farmhouse in Norfolk with her tempestuous poet father and unconventional mother. Alongside her ever expanding set of siblings and half-siblings, numerous pets and her father's rag-tag admirers, Gabriella navigates a chaotic childhood of wild bohemian parties and fluctuating levels of poverty. Longing to be normal, Gabriella enrols in a strict day school, only to find herself balancing two very different lives. Struggling to keep the eccentricities of her family contained, her failure to achieve conformity amongst her peers is endearing, and absolute. Come and Tell Me Some Lies is Raffaella Barker's enchanting first novel - a humorous, bittersweet tale of a girl who longs to be normal, and a family that can't help be anything but.
Editorial ReviewA gentle, charming account of a family of cosmopolitan sophistication living in a rural shambles ... What emerges at the end ... is an enormous sense of privilege in growing up among such vibrant, affectionate characters * Evening Standard * The whole is suffused with love. To write well and with such open-hearted affection is an achievement * Observer * A funny, though sometimes melancholy, story of irresponsible and drunken bohemianism ... A clever and touching debut * Guardian * I love Raffaella Barker's books - so funny and acerbic * Maggie O'Farrell * [A] highly assured beginning ... She writes beautifully ... combining, with apparent ease, emotion and admirable precision * Independent on Sunday *
