Another corker of a novel from Legend Press

Monday, June 20, 2011

If you get time this month I would strongly suggest you put on the kettle and read this novel.  I will warn you that you should choose your spot wisely as you will not be getting up anytime in the near future. This is one of those 'down it in one' books. 


Published by Legend Press (a bloody good publishing house between you and me) Swiss author Zoe Jenny's novel The Sky is Changing is the first of her publications to be written in English which according to her website makes " her one of the first authors to write and publish novels in different languages in original form". 
The story traces the life of Claire, a former dancer living in London after the 7 July bombings. Claire has reached a cross-roads in her life as she is unable to place herself in a society that is struggling to identify itself as a survivor. Yearning for a child of her own, Claire reaches out to Nora, her seven-year -old swimming pupil, and soon finds that the bond between them is growing alarmingly strong.


Zoe Jenny expertly delivers a novel which questions society's ability to heal and move on. Exploring alternative avenues to parenthood and what it means to become a parent, Zoe also dives into the realms of marital homes and exposes the tensions which often become challenging hurdles in relationships. 

A whirlwind of a novel that leaves the reader feeling like they've made a new friend. The Sky is Changing  is definitely a book for your reading list.
