9780099428329: Pop

During the heatwave of 1975, Maggie, thirteen, goes to live with her grandfather, Pop, in Sutton Coldfield. Pop's mission is to know everything: the annual Fox and Dogs pub quiz is looming. Maggie doesn't know everything, but she does know about the great comedians - Ken Dodd, Tommy Cooper, Eric and Ernie - about country music, Shirley Bassie, and about how her mother died.

Pop sings with the poetry of the suburbs and aches with the poignancy of adolescence. Kitty Aldridge has a wonderfully distinctive voice and a deliciously sharp eye for the extraordinariness of ordinary lives.

Review:

"Pop is an unforgettable creation... By some distance the most eloquent first novel I have read this century...If literary London can lionise Zadie Smith, it should pay Kitty Aldridge the same compliment. She has star quality" (Sunday Telegraph)

"An authentic, gentle and genuinely funny account of ordinary life... This novel is at once life-affirming and important" (Independent on Sunday)

"Aldridge combines rich, poetic prose with an impressively light touch" (Guardian)

"A moving story, told with wit and invention, and the language shimmers in the heat-haze of sadness and loss. A truly original first novel" (Daily Mail)

"Kitty Aldridge is a real discovery, a writer of precision, delicacy and wit, and her first novel is a rare delight" (Salman Rushdie)

From the Publisher:

POP sings with the poetry of the suburbs and aches with the poignancy of adolescence. Kitty Aldridge has a wonderfully distinctive voice and a deliciously sharp eye for the extraordinariness of ordinary lives.
