Curmudgeon Avenue – The Terraced House Diaries by Samantha Henthorn is a hilarious take on the preposterous lives of Edna and Edith. After an elephant crushed Mr. and Mrs. Payne to death, Edna and Edith moved back to their parents’ house. The lives of these sixty-something years old sisters hadn’t quite turned out as well as they had expected. As a result, re-locating to Number One Curmudgeon Avenue was in the best interest of both of them. With their limited resources, they needed money to fix the roof of the house.
