Opis książki:

A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian is bestselling author Marina Lewycka s hilarious and award winning debut novel, now available as a Penguin Essential for the first time. "Two years after my mother died, my father fell in love with a glamorous blonde Ukrainian divorcee. He was eighty-four and she was thirty-six. She exploded into our lives like a fluffy pink grenade, churning up the murky water, bringing to the surface a sludge of sloughed-off memories, giving the family ghosts a kick up the backside." Sisters Vera and Nadezhda must aside a lifetime of feuding to save their emigre engineer father from voluptuous gold-digger Valentina. With her proclivity for green satin underwear and boil-in-the-bag cuisine, she will stop at nothing in her pursuit of Western wealth. But the sisters campaign to oust Valentina unearths family secrets, uncovers fifty years of Europe s darkest history and sends them back to roots they d much rather forget ..."It s rare to find a first novel that gets so much right ...Lewycka is a seriously talented comic writer" Time Out "Hugely enjoyable ...yields a golden harvest of family truths" Daily Telegraph "Delightful, funny, touching" Spectator
