It is the 1970s, and henpecked family man Tom Ripple is happy to wryly watch the world from his perfectly ordinary life, in a perfectly ordinary suburb. But, when his marriage fails and his family falls apart in the 1980s, self-deluded Tom must find a way of carrying on against an unexpected tide of change. And, as his dry, witty, and not always truthful asides take us to the heart of this wonderfully funny and ordinary man's life, he finds that, by the 1990s, both he and the world around him have changed utterly. An epic of suburban life and a debut of staggering scope, intimacy and warmth, "It's All Right Now" is full of funny and profound insights into the human condition, together with an extraordinary sense of the revolution that have taken place in the world over the last thirty years.
