WE ARE ALL MADE OF GLUE MARINA LEWYCKA When Georgie Sinclair meets Mrs Shapiro, their lives are both at the crossroads. Georgie has suddenly become the single mother of a reclusive teenager, while Mrs Shapiro is being forced to deal with the implications of hospitalisation and a social worker's prying into the life she leads with her seven mangy and highly dysfunctional cats. With the inclusion of a handyman, his two 'Uselesses', a sexy boss, his flirtatious father and some dodgy real estate agents, Lewycka manages to create a multicultural, multi-generational cacophony of misunderstandings, double-crosses and laughs.
