NOVEL OF THE MONTH
Ordinary People by Diana Evans
Written by Beckenham-based author Diana Evans, who has been praised by Naomi Alderman as ‘a lyrical and glorious writer; a precise poet of the human heart’
Set against the backdrop of Barack Obama’s historic election victory, Ordinary People is an intimate, immersive study of identity and parenthood, sex and grief, friendship and aging, and the fragile architecture of love. With its distinctive prose and irresistible soundtrack, it is the story of our lives, and those moments that threaten to unravel us.
Save the date: Diana will be at the Balham Literary Festival on 7th June. More details very soon.
