ELLY BIESTERS - UNCOMFORTABLE PEOPLE (2017)
ABOUT THE BOOK
‘I am a ‘derke’, a girl, and so I’m worth a tenner.’ Thus begins the story of a girl growing up in a river landscape. Central to her life is her granddad, the patriarch of the family. Once a proud fisherman, he now clings to a bygone life with his brother and sons. When the girl has to make her own way she realises that she has to abandon her background. Uncomfortable people is a harsh but funny debut full of unforgettable characters.
