Muddleton is a comic novel about the Hogg-Marchmont family – a dysfunctional and delusional aristocratic dynasty – as they desperately try to save their beloved ancestral home from demolition.

When Hogg Hall is condemned by the local council and ordered to be torn down, Earl Hardy Hogg-Marchmont, head of the family, thinks challenging the council will be a wasted effort, until he is visited by the furious ghosts of his ancestors, who convince him to put up a fight.

Spanning a period of two hundred and fifty years, Muddleton describes the history of this hapless family from the middle of the 18th century to the present day. It’s a tale of absurdity, supernatural encounters and surreal events, making it a truly unforgettable read.
