Bad Days in Broadacre


A struggling screenwriter is invited to 1990s USA to prepare a television drama series in New York. For peace and tranquillity he installs his family in a small and enchanting town in New England, but life at home soon finds itself competing with his script for entertainment.



With characters galore, this story portrays some of the idiosyncrasies of life in a small New England town as witnessed by its latest arrivals, Bill, a small-time English screenwriter and his wife Catherine and son Daniel. The citizens of Broadacre rise up against an authoritarian regime, with the added participation of a notorious New York gangster searching for his lost loot.



“A family deals with a sleepy Northern town’s secrets in this enjoyably energetic romp.” – Kirkus Reviews.


“. . . an engaging and thoughtfully conceived plot.” – Kirkus Reviews.
