Dry Spell by Clare Chambers
Book DescriptionIn 1976, four students took a trip to the desert. Now the repercussions of that fateful summer are coming back to haunt them...And repercussions are just what Guy doesn't need: his wife, Jane, is moving swiftly from slightly eccentric to downright peculiar, their three-year-old daughter seems set on destroying Jane's sanity, and now even God's gone quiet on him. As for Nina, she's having enough trouble with her son, James. He's got exams looming, a new girlfriend with pneumatic breasts and now, it seems, he's on drugs. Nina certainly won't welcome any ghosts from the past. Life isn't going smoothly for anyone. But when Hugo, long-forgotten agent of misfortune, threatens to pay them all a visit, disaster seems unavoidable.

Back Trouble, Paperback (December 2001)» View all books by Clare Chambers
On the brink of 40, newly single with a failed business, Philip thought he'd reached an all-time low. It only needed a discarded chip on a South London street to lay him literally flat. So, bedbound and bored, Philip writes the story of his life, only to reveal some comic and touching surprises.
UK Kirkus Review » University might equip people for one aspect of life - establishing a career - but doesn't necessarily help much with the fundamentals of coping with the rest of the grown-up world. And there is always the danger of youthful follies rising from their graves in all their embarrassing awfulness, just when stability seems within reach. In 1976, for their final vacation, Guy, Martin and Nina are persuaded to be egocentric geographer Hugo's back-up team on a field trip to Algeria; an expedition they should have known would be blighted from the start. It is not until the 1990s that retribution for earlier mistakes and impulsive foolishness come home to roost. When Hugo, safely domiciled for 17 years in Australia suddenly threatens to return to England, some well-settled stones concealing ancient indiscretions look like being overturned. In clean, clear prose, and with affectionate humour, Chambers reminds us that every stage of life has its repercussions on the years ahead. (Kirkus UK)
