9780099589891: Thirst

An unconventional, will-they-won't-they love story, that takes us from London to Siberia, and from hope to heartbreak, and back again. 
     The beginning of a relationship is usually all about getting to know each other, sharing stories far into the night, comparing experiences, triumphs and heartaches, until we know one another inside out. Not so for Dave and Alena. He's from London, she's from Siberia. They meet in a sleek Bond Street department store in the frayed heat of high summer, where she's up to no good and it's his job to catch her. So begins an unlikely relationship between two people with pasts, with secrets, they've no idea how to live with -- or leave behind. But despite everything they don't have in common, all the details they won't and can't reveal, they still find themselves fighting with all they've got for a future together.

About the Author:

KERRY HUDSON was born in Aberdeen. Growing up in a succession of council estates, B&Bs and caravan parks provided her with a keen eye for idiosyncratic behaviour and plenty of material for her first novel, Tony Hogan Bought Me an Ice-cream Float Before He Stole My Ma, which won the Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust First Book Award and was shortlisted for an array of prizes including the Guardian First Book Award and the Sky Arts Awards. Thirst is her second novel. She currently lives, works and writes in London.

Review:

"Accomplished...Beautiful...Heart-wrenching" Independent on Sunday "Accomplished...Beautiful...Heart-wrenching" Independent on Sunday "A fizzing, breathless love story from a terrifically talented storyteller" The List "A tender, off-kilter love story... the novel paints a vivid picture of two very different kinds of misfit, falling in love over one dusty, teeming London summer" Observer "Hudson captures the bustle of life in Hackney and Russia with energy and a sharp eye for detail... [Her characters] have love, guts, humour and conscience. This is Love on the Dole 21st-century style" -- Louise Welsh Guardian
