9780099433491: Paradise

Almost forty and with nothing to show for it, Hannah Luckraft is starting to notice that her lifestyle is not entirely sustainable: her subconscious is turning against her, her soul is a little unwell. Her family is wounded, her friends are odd, her body is not as reliable as it once was and her drinking is frankly out of hand. Robert, a dissolute dentist, appears to offer a love she can understand, but he may only be one more symptom of the problem she must cure. From the north-east of Scotland to Dublin, from London to Montreal, to Budapest and onwards, Hannah travels in search of the ultimate altered state: the one where she can be happy - her paradise.

Paradise is a compelling examination of failure that is also a comic triumph, a novel of dark extremes that is full of the most ravishing lyrical beauty.

Review:

"A brave and uncompromising book that lingers in the mind, Paradise is A.L. Kennedy on top form" ( Independent)

"This is a narrative that will not let the reader go - One of the most linguistically inventive and captivating British writers of the age" ( Observer)

"The book sings its encapsulated pain with the effervescent energy of laughter" ( The Times)

"Beautifully written...Her sharpest vision yet" ( Guardian)

"One of Britain's most iconoclastic and fiercely independent talents, a writer who repeatedly tests our expectations... Compelling, even consuming" ( Daily Telegraph)

From the Publisher:

The breakthrough novel by Best-of-Young-British novelist
