Carol Lake
Format: Paperback
Publisher: Five Leaves Publications

Country of publication: United Kingdom


Forty years after Rosehill won the Guardian fiction award Carol Lake wrote a set of new stories to accompany the original set. These linked short stories paint a haunting picture of Britain’s inner city in the 1980s, where the bleak facts of disadvantage are combated by the spirit of those most affected. Neighbours offer joy and consolation; hopes and dreams retain their fragile hold.
