All in the (Dysfunctional) Family: Doug Johnstone, Michael J Malone, Iain Maitland
Sunday 22nd September from 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm BST£8 – £9
You can choose your friends, but you can’t kill your family. It’s the first law of both domestic bliss and the legal system. However, in these three heart-breaking novels, it is sorely tempting.
In Doug Johnstone’s superb Breakers, 17-year-old Tyler is a good kid in the wrong family, trying to do the right thing against all the odds. Michael J Malone’s emotionally charged In the Absence of Miracles is an exploration of family secrets and the damage done by keeping them hidden too long. The family in Iain Maitland’s Mr Todd’s Reckoning is driving each other crazy. One father and one son; and one of them has developed a taste for killing.
