9780099539742: In the Falling Snow

Social worker Keith, separated from his wife and their teenage son, is floundering in a world of fraught sexual politics, parental responsibilities and class expectations. He takes refuge from his domestic problems in a long-cherished writing project and a renewed relationship with his aging father, who came to Britain as part of the windrush generation, but for the first time in his life he begins to feel extremely vulnerable as a black man in English society.

Meanwhile Annabelle watches the man she married against the wishes of her parents struggle with his grip on reality. Despite their three year estrangement, she realises that they have no choice but to close ranks if they are to protect their son from a world of street gangs and violence.

Product Description:

Keith is a social worker who, following a brief affair with a colleague, finds himself living alone in a flat a few streets away from his wife, Annabelle, and his teenage son. His domestic problems, allied with growing tensions at work, profoundly undermine his peace of mind.

Review:

"Impressive... The extended conclusion is expertly done; the sense of loss it conjures, lasting" (Stephanie Cross Daily Mail)

"Caryl Phillips is an alpha-class writer, both as a phrase-maker and an observer of human nature" (Max Davidson Mail on Sunday)

"There is rich material here" (Jane Shilling Evening Standard)

"A good book... extremely well done" ( Guardian)

"A sharply observed slice of modern British life, cutting across race, class and generational divides to reveal the complexities we're constantly negotiating" ( Metro)
