Book Description
In his first venture into non-fiction, the celebrated novelist Rupert Thomson has produced one of the most beautiful and unforgettable memoirs of recent years; a moving and disarmingly funny portrait of a family undergoing turmoil and change. Thomson`s mother died suddenly when he was very young. On the death of his father twenty years later, the three brothers - Rupert, Robin and Ralph - returned to the family home to confront both their grief and each other. While the rest of the country focused on the miner`s strike, on the struggle between Thatcher and Scargill, they took their dad`s old pills and tore the house apart. When the three brothers went their separate ways, a rift opened up between Thomson and his youngest brother. More than two decades would go by before Thomson began to unravel the mystery of the falling-out and to piece together a portrait of the mother he could never remember. This Party`s Got to Stop is an honest, wry account of mismanaged goodbyes, of time lost and time wasted, of mourning gone wrong and murder plots never quite carried out. It reveals the complexities of family life in graphic and often heartbreaking detail.
