The Cast Iron Shore, Paperback

Description

This is a capacious and wide-ranging book, not just about individuals but about the history they move through.

Whether the scene is Liverpool in the Blitz, a potato-chip factory in the prairies or a seedy hotel room in Hanoi, the writing is immediate ...Grant approaches each character with insight and a tart sympathy' Hilary Mantel, Literary Review Sybil Ross has been brought up by her Jewish furrier father and style-obsessed mother as an empty-headed fashion plate.

But on the worst night of Liverpool's blitz she uncovers a secret that leaves her disorientated.

When the war is over, Sybil embarks on a voyage that leads her to the very edge of America, and to a final choice.

THE CAST IRON SHORE is a beautuful evocation of one woman's journey from the 1930s to the 1990s, combining the personal and political in an outstanding first novel.
