Beschreibung:

Anne Tyler is the author of twenty bestselling novels. Her most recent, A Spool of Blue Thread , was a Sunday Times bestseller and shortlisted for both the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction and the Man Booker Prize. She has won the Pulitzer Prize and the Sunday Times Award for Literary Excellence, which recognises a lifetime's achievement in books, as well as being nominated by Roddy Doyle and Nick Hornby as 'the greatest novelist writing in English'.
Vinegar Girl sees Anne Tyler going behind the scenes of one of Shakespeare's most controversial yet enduring ( Kiss Me Kate , 10 Things I Hate About You ) plays: 'You know how sometimes a friend will tell you something that happened to her, and you think wait, there must be more to it than that, I'm sure there's another side to this. Well, that's how I've always felt about The Taming of the Shrew .'
The hilarious new novel from the bestselling author of A Spool of Blue Thread

'A thoroughly modern love story' Guardian, Books of the Year
Kate Battista is stuck. How did she end up running house and home for her eccentric scientist father and infuriating younger sister Bunny?

Dr Battista has other problems. His brilliant young lab assistant, Pyotr, is about to be deported. And without Pyotr, his new scientific breakthrough will fall through...

When Dr Battista cooks up an outrageous plan that will enable Pyotr to stay in the country, he's relying - as usual - on Kate to help him. Will Kate be able to resist the two men's touchingly ludicrous campaign to win her round?

Anne Tyler's brilliant retelling of The Taming of the Shrew asks whether a thoroughly modern woman like Kate would ever sacrifice herself for a man. The answer is as surprising as Kate herself.
Anne Tyler, prizewinning author of A SPOOL OF BLUE THREAD, reimagines Shakespeares controversial comedy THE TAMING OF THE SHREW. When Kate discovers her fathers plot to marry her off to his awkward lab assistant Pyotr so he can stay in the country, she is furious. Kate is no pushover, but will she be able to resist the two mens touchingly ludicrous campaign to win her round?
