Description

A dark, satiric novel about a woman whose attempt to escape crises in her health and marriage ends up causing more chaos.

In a single day, Cat finds out that she is pregnant, that a lump in her breast is the worst thing it could be, and that her husband has done something unforgivably creepy. Her life is stressful enough as it is: her career is stalled and being a stay-at-home mom for two young kids has become a grind. Cat responds by falling apart in the messiest way possible. She tries to run away from her marriage and her life — a life that, on the outside, looks like middle-class success in the big city.

Told through multiple perspectives (including that of a very old dog), Lump is a dark comedy about marriage, motherhood, class, and cancer.
