An extraordinary novel of love, loss and the act of deception from the award-winning and widely acclaimed author, A.L. Kennedy. 'A.L. Kennedy is almost unique among British novelists for her ability to write fiction that is at once challengingly experimental, luminously beautiful and utterly readable. It helps that she is fiercely observant and very funny...If you want a guide to the rough contradictions of ther heart, A.L. Kennedy is your woman' Jane Shilling, "Evening Standard"
The author of five previous novels, two books of non-fiction, and five collections of short stories, A.L. Kennedy's last novel, Day, was the 2007 Costa Book of the Year. She has twice been selected as one of Granta's Best of Young British Novelists and has won a host of other awards. She lives in Glasgow and is a part-time lecturer in creative writing at Warwick University.
