Now That You're Back by A. L. Kennedy

Book Description

Exposing and exploring the sinuous undercurrents of violence, anguish and love, A.L. Kennedy examines the nature of the individual, both in isolation and society, as characters define and deny their chosen identities. While showing us the unlikeliness of intimacy and the impossibility of communication, Kennedy also reveals the subversive liberation of impotence, the humour of discomfort as human beings chafe together, the crazed claustrophobia of the family adn the wildly funny results of an eccentricity unleashed.

Serious Sweet by A. L. Kennedy Serious Sweet, Hardback (May 2016)

A good man in a bad world, Jon Sigurdsson is 59 and divorced: a senior civil servant in Westminster who loathes his work for a government engaged in unmentionable acts. She's 45 and shakily sober, living on Telegraph Hill. Somewhere out there is Jon, pinballing around the city with a mobile phone and a letter-writing habit he can't break.

Doctor Who: the Drosten's Curse by A. L. Kennedy Doctor Who: the Drosten's Curse, Paperback (January 2016)

Something distinctly odd is going on in Arbroath. It could be to do with golfers being dragged down into the bunkers at the Fetch Brothers' Golf Spa Hotel, never to be seen again. It might be related to the strange twin grandchildren of the equally strange Mrs Fetch - owner of the hotel and fascinated with octopuses.

Paradise by A. L. Kennedy Paradise, Paperback (August 2015)

Almost forty and with nothing to show for it, Hannah Luckraft is starting to realise that her lifestyle is not sustainable. Her soul is unwell, her family is wounded, her friends are odd, her body is unreliable and her drinking is out of control.
