And Hazel's sister Linda has become a groupie of a seductive televangelist When Hazel finally learns the awful truth about her husband's research she joins forces with her mother and sister to get even with the men who are controlling their lives Too late to stop the birth of the perfect baby But not too late for a piercingly funny and blackly ironic revenge on genetic engineering and the born again church. Maybe 25It was OK Genuinely OKI mean if it s going to be a bit of a genetic tampering over the top characterization Jesus involved story and you re NOT going to involve zombies It s going to be tricky to get above OK in my bookAnd this book didn tI think maybe if Linda HADN T given herself a manicure in the office including clipping her nails and I then pictured it and I then cringed and I then lost interest in continuing the story or sympathizing with her I might have bumped to 25Maybe if Hazel hadn t been called Hazel Maybe if Billy was a bit described If Ishmael hadn t emphasized every other wordI don t know little thingsThe humor was a bit over the top the story oddly at ends with itselfIt would make a good HBO special

Egg Dancing

Here is the perfect novel for everyone who ever felt manipulated and lied to in a relationship for everyone who ever thought they were sane and it was the doctors and psychiatrists who should be locked up for everyone who ever wished for the perfect low maintenance baby and for everyone who ever had doubts about how far medical science should go regardless of how far it could go Moira Sugden long term resi. I came to this novel having previously read Liz Jensen s recent works The Ninth Life of Louis Drax and My Dirty Little Book of Stolen Time Egg Dancing is her first novelEgg Dancing is an original weave of psychiatry obstetrics genetics science fiction dystopia and religion in this comic thriller which has multiple points of confusion and story turns for the reader Egg Dancing has many laugh out loud moments appealing to my black sense of humour and the novel is on occasions uite touching and sensitive An easy read and as the plot unravels you don t need to be Sherlock Holmes to work out how it s going to pan out But that is a minor criticism Jensen has told a good tale her female characters are as ever strong well constructed and full of the flaws that manifest themselves in most hilarious storylines Jensen writes with energy not with speed a fizz and sprightliness that keeps the reader engaged However by half way through I was urging her to explore the characters and the story further I felt like there was a lot there to give us and I was left a little short changed by the end It s not a uestion of depth but breadth Of the three central female characters it was the sister Linda who was given the longest and most detailed narrative and as a result this novel could have at least another 100 pages of value to add to the other two women The character of Linda steals the show and this created an imbalance in my view Not that I am complaining too much Linda provided the best of the black comedy and some cringe worthy and spitefully revengeful momentsI found myself thinking is this the origin of the novel The Ninth Life of Louis Drax written several years later I had feelings of d j vu throughout a cast of strong female characters a male doctors children with mysterious uirks Liz Jensen has written an inventive and original first novel and I look forward to reading of her work in the future

Dent of the Manxheath Institute of Challenged Stability and her daughters Hazel and Linda are the ideal dysfunctional family Hazel's husband Gregory is a gynecologist who is developing a perfect baby drug by experimenting on both his unsuspecting wife and his complicit mistress; Hazel's 4 year old son a result of Gregory's experiments is communicating telepathically with his institutionalized grandmother;. There s nobody uite like Liz Jensen and this her debut ranks amongst one of the weirdest books I ve ever read Is it supposed to be about the destructive nature of families how God and Mammon are scarcely distinguishable or just because science can achieve something doesn t mean it should It also has lots to say about the status of women over a certain age with or without children It doesn t help that Linda the older childless sister is such a bitch that no one could stand to be in the same room as her never mind procreate with her Hardly anybody s what you d call likeable but this being satire that s the pointI enjoy her books but I do wonder at her persistently jaded view of the world Sex is nearly always comical and disappointing kids are a nuisance families crosses to bear Perhaps it s because she had yet to hit her stride but it seems cruder and less nuanced than its successors It was still good fun though and made my lunch breaks fly by

    Oh My God How many writers have than one style of writing? Narrow it down to modern writers and Liz Jensen definitely makes the shortlist One should read this book and The Ninth Life of Louis Drax back to back to get the full extent of her wonderful versatility with comedy and emotion Let me just say that the scene in which Linda pelts Carmichael with eggs made me both laugh and cry at the same time The last time the emotion in a book rea
