Review

“Remarkable . . . A multigenerational tale of a spectacularly dysfunctional Yorkshire family and one of the funniest works of fiction to come out of Britain in years.” ―Ben Mcintryre, The New York Times Book Review

“Scoundrels, malcontents, misfits, and cheats. Every family has them, though seldom are they handled with the winsome wit and wisecrackery that make Behind the Scenes at the Museum such a smart and funny read.” ―The Washington Times

“Startlingly original . . . A poignant and beautifully wrought portrait of a young girl's growth.” ―Johanna Stoberock, The Seattle Times

“Really comic, really tragic, bracingly unsentimental . . . What a triumph! What joy!” ―The Boston Sunday Globe

“An effervescent, affecting delight.” ―Rebecca Radner, The San Francisco Examiner & Chronicle

--This text refers to the paperback edition.
