From Booker-Prize winning novelist Stanley Middleton.

Thomas Harris is on the cusp of success as a classical composer with a growing reputation.

Review:

"Middleton is a born writer; unpretentious, discerning, intelligent, and virtually incapable of writing a duff sentence. He is the Chekhov of suburbia; I recommend him." (James Runcie Daily Telegraph)

"As ever with Middleton, the content is quiet and undramatic but the treatment makes it highly readable… there is never a dull moment." ( Sunday Times)

"Enlivening and heartening." ( Times Literary Supplement)

"A sharp and faithful picture of middle-class provincial life." ( New Statesman)

Book Description:

A novel from 'the Chekhov of suburbia', Booker-Prize winning author Stanley Middleton. Rejacked and reissued in Windmill.
