Lucy Fricke's Daughters, translated by Sinead Crowe.
We knew we had to read this road trip novel when we came across this quote from it:
"'So what are we going for here?' I asked. 'Thelma and Louise?'
'They were young, sexy and downtrodden,' Martha said. 'Look at us, we're not even downtrodden.'
I tried again. 'Why We Took The Car?'
'They were teenage boys. We're premenopausal women. I don't quite see the comparison.'"
Lucy Fricke's Daughters tells the story of two women either side of forty on a road trip across Europe, each of them dealing with difficult fathers along the way. A bestseller and booksellers favourite in Germany, Daughters evokes laughter and tears by way of life and death, friendship and family.
Tranlated by Sinead Crowe.
