Lucy desperately wants a baby. Sam is determined to write a hit movie. The problem is that both their efforts seem to be unfruitful. And given that the average IVF cycle has about a one in five chance of going into full production, Lucy's chances of getting what she wants are considerably better than Sam's.
What Sam and Lucy are about to go through is absolutely inconceivable. The question is, can their love survive?
Inconceivable confirms Ben Elton as one of Britain’s most significant, entertaining and provocative writers.
Moving and thoroughly entertaining
A very funny book about a sensitive subject...Ben Elton the writer might be even funnier than Ben Elton the comic
A tender, beautifully balanced romantic comedy
Extremely funny, clever, well-written, sharp and unexpectedly moving...This brilliant, chaotic satire merits rereading several times
This is Elton at his best - mature, humane, and still a laugh a minute. At least
