Original Bliss by A. L. Kennedy

Book Description

The stories collected in Original Bliss are concerned, appropriately, with the complexities of sex and the lack of it. In the long novella that gives the book its title, Helen Brindle thinks she has lost God - but it is simply love that she's missing. She can't find it at home, with the violent, deadly Mr Brindle, but will she find it in Stuttgart when she meets the enigmatic Edward E. Gluck, with his Process and his paraphernalia? And what happens when her father confessor starts to confess? A beautiful and terrifying examination of passion and pornography, of the aching need for completion and healing.

Uncle Shawn and Bill and the Almost Entirely Unplanned Adventure by A. L. Kennedy Uncle Shawn and Bill and the Almost Entirely Unplanned Adventure, Hardback (February 2017)

The first book in a hilarious, heart-warming series for children from Costa Award-winning author A. L. Kennedy, illustrated by Gemma Correll.

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.
