Description - The National Joke by Torben Betts
Will the Prime Minister give Rupert the political prize he's been hoping for? How much more can Olivia take of her mother Mary and her withering put-downs? Will Charlie get off her phone for long enough to listen to anyone, let alone her boyfriend?
Home truths emerge and a reputation could tumble as Rupert St John-Green MP and three generations of women gather in the family garden to watch a total solar eclipse.
