9780099521280: Love Me Tender

There is more going on in the village of Buckleigh than meets the eye and its sense of community is often as much a curse as a blessing. While Barrie, the local mayor, is driven into the arms of tough single mother Debbie, his father lusts after a former chorus girl whose breath now smells of 'cabbage and chocolates'. Meanwhile, a farmer's wife is driven to murder by her unfaithful husband, a carnival queen faces an uncertain future and the postman is in danger of realising his sexual fantasies.

Playing on in the background of each of these wry, interlinked tales is the village silver band, swilling cider and keeping a sharp eye out for any misbehaviour.

Product Description:

There is more going on in rural Buckleigh than meets the eye. Distinguished by its Silver Band, whose presence is felt throughout, it soon becomes clear that the neighbourliness and sense of community the Band represents are as much a curse as a blessing.

Review:

"These lives are captured in surprising, sometimes shocking ways. The timelessness of Jane Feaver's fiction conceals a quality of enchanting newness. This is a unique voice" (Philip Hensher Daily Telegraph)

"She has a wonderful way of teasing out the comedy of people struggling to deal with what the poet Frances Cornford called 'the long littleness of life'" (Kate Saunders The Times)

"Jane Feaver has proved an expert at creating a sense of place ... tender, imaginative prose" (Vicky Allen Sunday Herald)

"The neatness and power of Feaver's writing is a spartan pleasure: when shafts of poetical insight or tenderness break through its restraint they are genuinely luminous and moving" ( Guardian)

"Confirms her considerable talents" ( The Independent)
