9781844085415: The Clothes on Their Backs

In a red brick mansion block off the Marylebone Road, Vivien, a sensitive, bookish girl grows up sealed off from both past and present by her timid refugee parents. Then one morning a glamorous uncle appears, dressed in a mohair suit, with a diamond watch on his wrist and a girl in a leopard-skin hat on his arm. Why is Uncle Sandor so violently unwelcome in her parents' home? This is a novel about survival - both banal and heroic - and a young woman who discovers the complications, even betrayals, that inevitably accompany the fierce desire to live. Set against the backdrop of a London from the 1950s to the present day, The Clothes on Their Backs is a wise and tender novel about the clothes we choose to wear, the personalities we dress ourselves in, and about how they define us all.

Review :

Praise for STILL HERE: ** 'It's a testament to Grant's skill that she can create a novel at once so serious and so readable' INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY ** 'A passionate, meaty book ... Rewarding' MAIL ON SUNDAY ** 'Tough, lusty and resolutely unreconstructed, Alix is an unconventional, strikingly memorable creation' HARPERS & QUEEN
