9780099277644: A Dry Spell

In 1976 four students took a trip to the desert. Now the repercussions of that fateful summer are coming back to haunt them...

And repercussions are just what Guy doesn't need: his wife, Jane, is moving swiftly from slightly eccentric to downright peculiar, their three-year-old daughter seems set on destroying Jane's sanity, and now even God's gone quiet on him.

As for Nina, she's having enough trouble with her son, James. He's got exams looming, a new girlfriend with pneumatic breasts and now, it seems, he's on drugs. Nina certainly won't welcome any ghosts from the past.

Life isn't going smoothly for anyone. But when Hugo, long-forgotten agent of misfortune, threatens to pay them all a visit, disaster seems unavoidable.

From the Publisher:

An irresistible comedy of modern manners
A Dry Spell is the witty, perceptive and engrossing new novel from the award-winning author of Learning To Swim.

Praise for A Dry Spell

‘Intriguing and thought-provoking’ Katie Fforde, bestselling author of Life Skills and Thyme Out

‘’I was completely captivated … I love layered family stories, and this is one of the best I’ve ever read’ Victoria Routledge, bestselling author of Friends Like These and Kiss Him Goodbye

‘The sudden reappearance of old friends can open a can of worms, and that’s what happens when Nina receives a call from Hugo – who she hasn’t seen since an ill-fated student expedition twenty years before. As a single parent with a teenage son who appears to be dabbling in drugs, more drama is the last thing she needs – and Hugo’s return seems certain to mean disaster for Nina. A touching, moving story written with Chambers’ characteristic lightness of touch’ Woman’s Own

‘Four students take a summer trip to the desert in the dog years of the 1970s. Decades later, the repercussions of that fateful trip are coming back to haunt them … Bleak but funny, sharply observed characters and crisp dialogue make this a great read’ Yorkshire Post

‘A stylish comic story of modern manners’ Choice

Book Description:

A WARM AND IRRESISTIBLE COMEDY OF MODERN LIFE BY THE AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR OF LEARNING TO SWIM
