On the surface, Abernant is an idyllic rural town. But underneath, personalities clash, hatreds simmer and blackmail and sexual debauchery abound. The Mayoress's desire to commission a town statue from a provocative drunk, and the penniless commodore's plan to hire out his mansion to a dishonest film crew, all under the ever-watchful eye of the local paper desperate to increase its sales, set the stage for the hilarious and absorbing turns of this latest Valley series adventure.

'Barry Pilton is the best kind of comedy writer: a man who can make you laugh with your brain as well as your belly'
Sarah Dunant

'Pilton is a witty and intelligent writer'
Independent

'There's a touch of the Starkadders of Cold Comfort Farm in this comic romp set in Abernant, a fictional town in rural Wales … he has created a wonderful cast of characters … a barrowload of laughs about small-town life'
Tribune

'The collective crash-and-burn is as hilarious as it is poignant. Pilton's prose is charmingly frictionless, funny and oddly elegant … A delight'
