The Cactus





A RICHARD AND JUDY AUTUMN BOOK CLUB PICK SHORTLISTED FOR THE BEST FIRST NOVEL AWARD 'One of the funniest, quirkiest books either of us has read for a long time ... stand by for a slam-bam finish' Richard & Judy Book Club 'The Cactus will be compared to Gail Honeyman's appealingly eccentric Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine' Sunday Times It's never too late to bloom ...

People aren't sure what to make of Susan Green. Family and colleagues find her prickly and hard to understand - but Susan makes perfect sense to herself. Age 45, she thinks her life is perfect, as long as she avoids her feckless brother, Edward - a safe distance away in Birmingham. She has a London flat which is ideal for one; a job that suits her passion for logic; and a personal arrangement providing cultural and other, more intimate, benefits. Yet suddenly faced with the loss of her mother and, implausibly, with the possibility of becoming a mother herself, Susan's greatest fear is being realised: she is losing control. And things can only get worse ... at least in Susan's eyes. This sparkling debut is a breath of fresh air with real heart and a powerful emotional punch. In Susan we find a character as exasperating and delightful as The Rosie Project's Don Tillman. An uncompromising feminist and a fierce fighter, it's a joy to watch her bloom.

For fans of Marian Keyes who demand a bit of grit in their comic writing' Emerald Street (P)2017 Hodder & Stoughton Limited
