Chloe Cartwright is an eccentric yet brilliant prize-winning writer, who has always been more focused on political causes than cooking a wholesome meal for her family. Her daughter, Hannah, has never been much good at anything - other than shoplifting, that is. Hannah lacks direction and scrambles through life, before falling, almost by chance, into a successful career as partner to one of Cape Town's leading chefs. Life is looking good - until Chloe's behaviour becomes even more irrational than usual ... Is Hannah imagining it? Or is something terribly wrong? Both delightfully readable and powerfully moving, Below Luck Level is the story of a daughter's relationship with her mother and the unexpected challenges of caring for a parent with Alzheimers.
