Description

‘It’s true that you can’t buy love or happiness with money, but it is interesting to see what you can buy.’ When a bag stuffed full of ten pound notes comes hurtling out of the sky and lands a Damian’s feet, he doesn’t realise at first how hard it will be to spend it all. And he has to spend it quickly because in seventeen days time the Euro will be introduced and it will be worthless. Damian wants to use the money to do good deeds, but his brother Anthony, with his eye for an investment has other ideas.

“Written with charm and humour, this is a touching, absorbing oddity of a book about love, grief, avarice and generosity.” – The Sunday Times.
