Description

Details

Ellis is obsessed by the spiders that inhabit the crumbling house where he lives with his dad, his older sister and great-aunt Mafi – and also by a need to find out more about his mother, whose death overshadows the family’s otherwise happy existence. From early attempts at relationships, to unskilled jobs, flatshares and drug-addled nights on the beach, Ellis muddles his way towards adulthood. Meanwhile Denny, an ex-Merchant Navy man, bottles up his grief at the loss of his wife, refusing to talk about her. "This engaging coming-of-age novel highlights how death, grief and secrets can tear a father and son apart, and how a finely spun thread of love, mutual understanding and acceptance can bring them together again." - Guide2Nottingham eBook: 368 pages Publisher: Myriad Editions (8 Apr. 2010) Language: English
