Neve is in her mid-thirties, living in London and married to an older man, Edwyn. At present they are in a place of relative peace, but past battles have left their scars. As Neve recalls the decisions that led her to this marriage, she describes other loves and other debts -- her bullying father and her self-involved mother, a musician who played her, and a series of lonely flights from place to place. Drawing us into the battleground of these relationships, Gwendoline Riley spins a story of helplessness and hostility, of mistakes and misalliances in which both husband and wife have played a part. But is this, nonetheless, also a story of love? -- Provided by publisher

At 30, Aislinn Kelly is an occasional novelist with a near-morbid attunement to the motives of those around her. Isolated, restless and stuck, she decamps to America - a default recourse - this time to an attic room in Indianapolis, to attempt once again the definitive act of self-salvage

"Returning to Manchester, her broken home, Esther moves back in to the flat she used to share with her best friend Donna. Surrounded by empty gin bottles, and with her past life safely taped-up in cardboard boxes, she proceeds to turn her back on a 'real world' that seems meaningless and absurd. Instead she lives in her own head: in the dark of the cinema, in between the lines of the books she loves and the stories she makes up, as she wanders the streets with a notebook in her pocket and a Biro stuck in her ponytail. Then Esther meets Newton, a care-worn American wanderer with a drinker's face and an angel's smile. Newton changes everything, but for how long?"--BOOK JACKET
