Sisters Shaz and Trace work in the family corner shop by day but spend their nights glugging vodka and disco-dancing with Aunt Sheila in a magical wardrobe.
With characters including Tattoo Tony and Dammit Janet, this is a surreal story that could rival any TV soap-opera, apart from the lack of doom and gloom. Ms Patel has created a zany world where anything can happen, so long as you’re under the age of fifty-five. And although nothing very much does happen in the Wardrobe, the story is strangely addictive and the characters oddly fascinating.
A pleasant diversion from our usually normal world.
