Still Here, Paperback / softback Book

Still Here Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Alix, arrogant, middle-aged and angry comes home to the derelict port of Liverpool as her mother lies dying.

Irritably resigned to living alone for the rest of her life she suddenly finds herself erotically attracted to a stranger.

Joseph is an American architect who has come to the city to build a hotel.

Refusing to accept that his wife has left him or the trauma of a war he once fought in, the question is whether these survivors of the battles of the Seventies are meant for each other or not. And what happened to a factory in Dresden which long ago made the perfect face cream . . . 'Perhaps her most accessible novel to date ... Grant's prose is blunt, honest, yet often beautiful and bitingly funny.

Equally comfortable discussing concepts of justice and grooming routinme, the voices Grant creates are striking and authentic.

Her characters are irascible, witty, fierce, and full of the contradictions and blind spots that make them wholly human.

This is a compelling and satisfying novel' Rachel Seiffert, author of The Dark Room
