The arrival of a charismatic neighbor splits apart a small dysfunctional community. Alliances change, lovers become estranged and the catalyst remains forever unknowable in Kate Rigby’s short-listed novella.
“Suddenly Hassan laughs, a warm infectious laugh which utterly transforms him. ‘What fun. Come on. Entertain the Shah. Some more names.’ And Mark finds himself admitting Hassan to the world of Seaview Terrace’s more notable characters.”
Acutely realised observations of a micro society disintegrating under the tensions of its own contradictions. A novella that delights, informs, while inviting the reader, at the end, to change their point of view.
SUCKERS N SCALLIES (formerly SUCKA!)
Loss and loneliness in childhood lead introvert middle-class Kit Ramsay into forbidden friendship and taboo territory with Liverpool tough boy, Terry Dacosta. Violence and deprivation in Terry’s childhood, drive him to aspire to a life like Kit’s. Their early experiences in 60s and 70s Liverpool are to have far-reaching effects on their adult lives and relationships in 90s Bournemouth.
