Slippey when wet by Martin Goodman

I wasn’t sure just what to make of this book, but nonetheless, it was a compelling read. The story of Maggie who is eccentric to say the least, who, upon hearing that her husband has died in another woman’s bed then manages to put her dead husband into the car and drive him home. If that wasn’t strange enough Maggie then leaves home without burying her husband, making arrangements with her grand daughter to send the ashes to her in Bangladesh. In Bangladesh, Maggie befriends a young man, Seppen, and eventually seduces him, before leaving for Thailand where she scatters her husband’s ashes. Although I found the book in places strange, there was something about it that made me devour it in just over two days.
