The Tiny Gestures of Small Flowers

£8.99


Lonely, young and sharply observant, Eleanor arrives in Brighton looking for work, friendship and somewhere to live. But not for love. Not for sex. She’s tried that – brutally. She thinks she’s over the worst when she meets Scott, whose rages make him hurl everything at the wall, out of the car – everything including Eleanor who suddenly turns rebellious. A deceptively understated first person narrative that gets under the skin of a medley of strange lives.

The new book by Emily Critchley, whose Notes On My Family was nominated for the Carnegie and longlisted for the Branford Boase.
