Alys, Always

Large Mixed Cast

Lucinda Coxon from Harriet Lane Price: $14.95

A psychological thriller excavating the fault lines that separate the entitled from the rest

Frances works on the books pages of a Sunday newspaper

She's quiet and capable, but nobody takes much notice - her face is always pressed to the window, on the outside, looking in

But then one evening, driving back to London after visiting her infuriating parents, she comes across an overturned car crumpled on the side of the road

She waits with the injured driver - Alys Kyte - until the ambulance arrives

Later, Alys's famous family gets in touch

Now Frances finds herself ushered for the first time into the world on the other side of the window

And now she begins to wonder:- what will it take to stay and belong?
