Tragic and hilarious in equal measure, Tim Lott s story of Charlie and Maureen Buck s ailing marriage and their climb up (and down) the social ladder during the 1980s is a wonderfully honest portrait of ordinary people living through an extraordinary time. Steeped in the decade s cataclysmic events, packed with the crimes and misdemeanours we visit on each another, Rumours of a Hurricane is a powerful tale of change, how we face it and how we don t. An outstanding comic novel. Places the 1980s under sceptical and merciless scrutiny Literary Review.
