Almost English | The Man Booker Prizes website blurb. At Combe Abbey, a traditional English public school for which her family have sacrificed everything, Marina realises she has made a terrible mistake...as a semi-Hungarian Londoner, who is she? In the meantime, her mother, Laura...has her own painful secrets to deal with, especially the return of the last man she’d expect back in her life. She isn’t noticing that, at Combe Abbey, things are starting to go terribly wrong.
