Oink

by Matt Whyman

An unforgettable, slapstick story of what happens when two tiny porkers move in on family life. Paris Hilton carries one around like a Chihuahua, while Posh and Becks own a pair. The mini-pig, for reasons unknown, has become the latest celebrity accessory, but what's it really like to invite little livestock into the living room? Matt Whyman, a successful novelist, enjoys a quiet writer's life in the English countryside ... until his career wife, Emma, discovers the existence of a pig said to fit inside a handbag. She believes not one but two would be a perfect addition to the already diverse Whyman clan, which includes one wolf-like dog, a freaked-out feline, their wild bunch of ex-battery chickens as well as four challenging children. In reality, nobody could anticipate the trials and misadventures two riotous, raucous little piglets could bring. From turning Whyman's office into a literal pigsty, stealing his spot on the family sofa to trashing his neighbour's garden while drunk on fermented apples, Butch and Roxi swiftly establish themselves as "animals of mass distraction."Funny, touching and endlessly entertaining, Oink charts the battle of hearts, snouts and minds between a family man and two mini-pigs. Will Butch and Roxi ever settle down, or could their growing presence put the squeeze on Whyman in ways he never thought possible?

The Savages

by Matt Whyman

The Savage family is close-knit, but everyone has something to hide--from father Titus's shady business dealings, to mother Angelica's dangerously compulsive shopping habits, to 12-year-old Ivan's increasingly lethal pranks. But teenager Sasha's secret trumps them all: she is dating a vegetarian. This trait will never fly with the rest of the Savages, who are...uniquely carnivorous. Problems start to pile up. Sasha's boyfriend convinces her to try going vegetarian for a month, but then leaves her for a vegan vigilante. Angelica attempts to pay her mounting credit card bill by allowing commercials to film in the family home, until one of Ivan's pranks leaves a model dead in their bathroom. A detective hired to investigate Titus's predatory business affairs notices the model's disappearance, and starts to think that there may be something more sinister to the perfect-seeming Savages. He's right, of course--they're cannibals.
