About the book

Alex has a problem. Categorized as one of the disabled, dole-scrounging underclass, she is finding it hard to make ends meet. Now, in her part time placement at the local newspaper, she’s stumbled onto a troubling link between the disappearance of several homeless people, the new government Care and Protect Bill and the sinister extension of the Grassybanks residential home for the disabled, elderly and vulnerable. Can she afford the potential risk to herself and her wonderful guide dog Chris of further investigation?

Maggie Gee has written of this novel: 'Where is the satirist we need now, with the welfare state in chaos and politics a TV reality show? She is the fabulous, funny, sharp, outrageous Tanvir Bush, and Britain must read her. With a dauntless but sympathetic heroine, one of the best dog characters in literature and a disabled escort service called the Ladies' Defective Agency, this witty and all too believable novel is a 2017 inheritor of the satirical genius of Lindsay Anderson's Britannia Hospital and Anthony Burgess's Clockwork Orange.'

'Laugh and weep! With wit, flair and imagination, Tanvir Bush unfolds the secret life of a nation on benefits. Our nation....' Fay Weldon
