Patricia is a woman on the cusp of change. Her day to day life appears to have reached a terminal point. With three children nurtured and grown and a husband immersed in his academic work, Patricia drifts between the unsatisfying routines of a dull day job and the gossip obsessions of her reading group. But routines are altered by the arrival of a kind-hearted black couple, James and Alva, whose mysterious spin on the world makes her reevaluate her every waking thought and, finally, confront the childhood secret that has made her who she is.
“Hugely entertaining. Like Will Self on speed …” Ben Quinn, Irish Independent
