Synopsis

Abandonment

Abandonment $14.99

by Kate Atkinson

Published by Nick Hern Books

Elizabeth, forty-something, childless, recently separated, just wants to be alone

She's moved into a converted Victorian mansion, alive with history, character, woodworm and rot

But worse than that she's besieged by invaders of the human kind. Her best friend, her sister, their mother, the builder and a photographer are all determined to make their mark

And a former inhabitant of the house, disturbed from her resting place by Elizabeth's arrival, revisits her own long-forgotten past

'Atkinson has arrived at theatrical customs with a huge amount to declare' - The Guardian

'Witty, intelligent and absorbing ... terrific comic dialogue' - The Scotsman
