Tom Holloway

Published by Oberon

2 Male 2 Female

Gerry is almost 60, and he is going to meet his mother for the first time since he was three

His daughter Sally has had it up to here with him and his problems

The old lady lives somewhere in the UK

Liverpool, according to the records

So Gerry is going there to find out what made him who he is

Holloway's brilliant leap of imagination has been to set this story not at its outset half a century ago, but here and now

He has written a series of raw, often achingly beautiful conversations between members of a scattered family

Drawing it all together is Gerry's extraordinary, precarious bid to finally learn what it means to love and belong to a family
