What Becomes, Paperback Book

Description

A.L. Kennedy's fifth collection of short stories show us exactly what becomes of the broken-hearted.

Her characters are perfectly ordinary people - whose marriages founder; who sit on their own in a cinema watching a film with no soundtrack; who risk sex in a hotel with an anonymous stranger or who order a luxurious meal as their lives fall apart - but the stories she weaves around them are truly remarkable. She reveals the sadness, violence, hurt and terror, but also the redemption and the love - and she does so with enormous human compassion and leaps of black humour. From the winner of the Costa Book Award for Day.
