Living Nowhere, Paperback


Corby, the industrial new town built around a vast steel works, draws many to the fires of its furnaces - in the hope of steady work, a better house, a fresh start.

Amongst them are Francis Cameron, from Scotland, and his friend Jan Ruckert, the son of Latvian refugees.

Alienated, intelligent and curious, they form a strong and lasting bond: two teenage boys finding their feet in a foreign place.

But violence hangs in the Corby air like the ash and the stench from the steel works, and when it comes down it is sudden and lethal - with repercussions that will last a lifetime.

Living Nowhere is a story of friendship and loss - a resonant, thrilling book that carries at its core a beautiful and terrible secret.
