Joshua Spassky by Gwendoline Riley
Book DescriptionJoshua and Natalie share a vexed five-year history of sporadic encounters, explosive drunkenness and failed intercourse, spliced with sad intimations of true love. Natalie is attempting to start a new life in Manchester, but when Joshua calls unexpectedly and asks her to meet him in America she knows she has no choice but to go. Whilst wandering around the Blue Ridge Mountains or lying together for days in their cheap hotel room, they talk about their lives - about his ex-wife, and her dead family - and come to a surprising understanding. Shortlisted for the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize and winner of the Somerset Maugham Prize.

Opposed Positions, Paperback (January 2014)
At thirty, Aislinn Kelly is an occasional novelist with a near-morbid attunement to the motives of those around her. Isolated, restless and stuck, she decamps to America - a default recourse - this time to an attic room in Indianapolis, to attempt once again the definitive act of self-salvage.
Sick Notes, Paperback (March 2005)
Returning to Manchester, her broken home, Esther moves back to the flat she used to share with her best friend Donna. Surrounded by empty gin bottles, with her past life safely taped up in stacked cardboard boxes, she proceeds to turn her back on a 'real world' that seems meaningless and absurd. Instead she lives in her own head.
Cold Water, Paperback (May 2003)» View all books by Gwendoline Riley
Carmel McKisco, a 20-year-old girl working nights in a Manchester dive bar, cut off from her family, and from her ex, forms strange alliances with her customers and daydreams about escaping to Cornwall. She soon finds herself compelled to confront her romantic preoccupations, for better or worse.
