The book has such a strange title because the main character is a copy editor for a trade magazine about adhesives. But the novel explores the "glue" that keeps a family, community, and society together. Don't be put off by that summing up, as with her previous two novels, Lewycka has a prominent character who is an immigrant. In this case a quirky old lady who says at differing times that she is 96, 61, and I believe 86. It's a fun look at what happens to elderly people as they become less able to look after themselves.
