Description

Meet Roslyn, the plucky divorcée eager for new beginnings. Meet Duncan, the British conman with a penchant for collecting ex-wives. Meet Floyd, the lovable, foul-mouthed contractor who can fix anyone's house except his own. Each drags behind a mess of family and friends, each desperately trying to be lucky.

Are You Ready to be Lucky? mixes humour and heartbreak as the unruly Roslyn, Duncan, and Floyd relentlessly pursue happiness, trying again and again to get it right. In stunningly beautiful and energetic prose, Rosemary Nixon contemplates the chaos and absurdity of friendship, marriage, divorce, and betrayaland the astonishing complexities of luck and of love.
