Inconceivable

Inconceivable
Title: Inconceivable
Author:Elton Ben
Оценка: 4.0 of 5, readers votes - 1
Annotation:Whenever Sam thinks about babies, he envisages rivers of vomit and sleepless nights. But wife Lucy can't walk past Mothercare without crying. What's more, she can't seem to conceive-not by traditional methods, anyway. Hippy confidante Drusilla suggests an array of New Age remedies, including the intimate use of nutmeg oil and al fresco lovemaking. As Lucy faces a possible verdict of infertility, her love for Sam enters tailspin, accelerated by the advent of arrogant actor Carl Phipps. Meanwhile Sam, desperate to escape his tedious BBC job, conceives the inconceivable-turning the intimacies of their battle for babies into an acclaimed movie script.

Inconceivable tells a poignant and heart-rending story with Elton's trademark wit, creating a novel that is entertaining and emotionally satisfying; as explosive as Popcorn and with the incendiary humour of Blast From the Past. It courageously tackles its central theme from both the male and the female points of view, and while delivering laughs on every page, it steers clear of laddish clichИs. Lucy's tale, though pregnant with unfulfilled emotion, never stints on humour. 'There seem', she fumes, 'to be more urban myths attached to infertility than there are to & film stars filling their bottoms with small animals.'

Aside from the rich vein of gags about DIY conception (Sam has to leave a power lunch with the excuse: 'Sorry, my wife is ovulating &'), Elton also subjects the TV industry to relentless stand-up-style bombardment, giving birth to some brilliant asides, which enrich the main story but never overpower it. Funny, tragic, true and ultimately heart-warming, this book should be available on the National Health Service.
