Publication Date09 Mar 2017
Book DescriptionTHE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER WINNER OF THE BOOKS ARE MY BAG BREAKTHROUGH AUTHOR AWARD Kate Tempest's critically acclaimed debut novel, the literary companion to her Mercury-Prize nominated album Everybody Down, takes us into the beating heart of the capital in this multi-generational tale of drugs, desire and belonging Young Londoners Becky, Harry and Leon are leaving town in a fourth-hand Ford Cortina with a suitcase full of money. They are running from jealous boyfriends, dead-end jobs, violent maniacs and disgruntled drug dealers, in the hope of escaping the restless tedium of life in south-east London - the place they have always called home.
Editorial ReviewWonderful * Lauren Laverne * Soaring ... Tempest's flair for language is tempered by her sense of rhythm and pace ... Deeply affecting: cinematic in scope; touching in its empathic humanity ... Tempest's voice - by turns raging and tender - never falters * New York Times * This is a bold, bright, beguiling novel; a lustrous pageant that dazzles and grips ... An irresistible, immersive snapshot of a changing world, delivered in woozy, staccato sentences ... There's great pleasure to be taken from Tempest's debut ... She may well be unstoppable * Sunday Telegraph * One of the leading wordsmiths of our time ... She turns her raw, observational skills in book form to the urban young growing up poor - sex, drugs and increasing poverty amid the looming threat of gentrification * Jon Snow * It's hard not to be blown away by Kate Tempest ... A stirring, post-Dickensian lens trained on London's lonely underbelly * Evening Standard * This book is almost everything I hoped it would be. That is praise indeed, as I had high hopes ... As lyrical as it is gritty, and as devoted to (south-east) London as it is to humanity, with all its foibles * New Statesman *
