Take one narrator in retreat from suburban life, a shambolic draughty farmhouse in a scenic valley, two psychotic goats, one banker, a village-full of empty second homes and scores of poor and elderly people with nowhere to go.
Take one widowed survivalist called Cassandra White.
Take an escalating state of hostilities between the haves who don't even use what they have, and the have-nots who decide they're sick of having nothing at all.
Take one crazy scheme to reclaim the valley for the locals.
What do you get?
A hilarious, timely satire from Joanna Kavenna, the prize-winning author of Inglorious and The Birth of Love...
