About this product
- DescriptionFrom the prodigiously talented A. L. Kennedy comes a flamboyantly stylish and fiercely emotional vel about fathers and daughters, creation and self-destruction, and love' s paradoxical power to heal its most devastated victims. One such victim is Nathan Staples, a writer whose hilarious contempt for humanity is surpassed only by his corrosive self-loathing. Along with five equally dysfunctional colleagues Nathan lives on an island retreat off the coast of Wales, where he yearns for the daughter he lost years before. Now, in defiance of all his hopes, Mary Lamb- herself an aspiring writer- is about to join him as the seventh member of the colony. As Nathan tortuously wins the trust of the child who has inkling of their true relationship, Mary comes to a gradual understanding of her gift. In Everything You Need, A. L. Kennedy combines the mythic resonance of Arthurian legend with a sensibility as lyrical as it is profane.
- Author BiographyA. L. Kennedy has received many prizes for her work, including the Somerset Maugham Award, the Encore Award, and the Saltire Scottish Book of the Year Award. She lives in Glasgow.
