Coco Pinchard’s Big Fat Tipsy Wedding by Robert Bryndza: don’t read this in public!

bigfattipsyCoco Pinchard is getting her life back together. She’s divorced from dopey philandering first husband Daniel, son Rosencrantz is moving out and gorgeous Adam, Coco’s boyfriend, is about to move in. Even Ethel, Coco’s ex-mother-in-law, if you can have one of those, seems to be rather nice to her these days.
But then Adam starts behaving strangely and Coco’s happiness begins to unravel… despite two more adorable men, Rocco and Xavier, and Rosencrantz’s outrageous housemates entering her life.
Robert Bryndza manages to combine side-splitting humour with some pretty serious issues, without trivialising them or making the book’s atmosphere too heavy. Coco faces some very big challenges but she’s nothing if not indomitable and creative, and she takes them head on. She gets a little bit of supernatural help along the way, which fits perfectly into Coco’s somewhat chaotic life.
The book consists of a series of emails and this works extremely well. Each one conveys the personality of its writer and keeps the story flowing from various points of view, but all reflect the talent and humour of this wonderful author.
Coco Pinchard’s Big Fat Tipsy Wedding is comedy fiction at its very, very best.
Warning: not to be read in public. Your chuckles, snorts of laughter, gasps and occasional tears may cause consternation.
