The Dark Flood Rises Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

NEW YORK TIMES 100 NOTABLE BOOKS OF 2017: 'masterly'GUARDIAN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: 'An absolute tour de force'Fran may be old but she's not going without a fight.

So she dyes her hair, enjoys every glass of red wine, drives restlessly around the country and lives in an insalubrious tower block that her loved ones disapprove of. And as each of them - her pampered ex Claude, old friend Jo, flamboyant son Christopher and earnest daughter Poppet - seeks happiness in their own way, what will the last reckoning be?

Will they be waving or drowning when the end comes? By turns joyous and profound, darkly sardonic and moving, The Dark Flood Rises questions what makes a good life, and a good death.
