    Doggerland

    Ben Smith

    ‘The Road meets Waiting for Godot: powerful, unforgettable, unique’ Melissa Harrison, author of At Hawthorn Time.Doggerland is a superbly gripping debut novel about loneliness and hope, nature and survival – set on an off-shore windfarm in the not-so-distant future.‘His father’s breath had been loud in the small room. It had smelled smoky, or maybe more like dust. He had knotted and unknotted a strap on the bag he was holding – he must have been leaving to go out to the farm that day. ‘I’ll get out,’ he’d said. ‘I’ll come back for you, ok?’ The boy remembered that; had always remembered it. And, for a time, he’d believed it too.’In the North Sea, far from what remains of the coastline, a wind farm stretches for thousands of acres.The Boy, who is no longer really a boy, and the Old Man, whose age is unguessable, are charged with its maintenance. They carry out their never-ending work, scoured by wind and salt, as the waves roll, dragging strange shoals of flotsam through the turbine fields. Land is only a memory.So too is the Boy’s father, who worked on the turbines before him, and disappeared. The boy has been sent by the Company to take his place, but the question of where he went and why is one for which the Old Man will give no answer.As his companion dredges the sea for lost things, the Boy sifts for the truth of his missing father. Until one day, from the limitless water, a plan for escape emerges…This beautifully crafted novel about loneliness and hope, nature and survival, is as haunting as it is compelling – a very special debut indeed.

But Nancy is a high-class call girl, a fact her banker fiance, Matt does not know (he thinks she’s a copy editor) and Nancy wants to keep it that way.With one foot in the bedrooms of her rich and demanding clients and one in the world of her fiancé and his family, Nancy demonstrates, in her inimitable fashion, that if you know the dance, you can keep those two worlds from colliding.

    The third Nancy Chan novel: a mischievous, insightful romp set in Provence during the summer of 2002.It’s 2002 and New Yorkers from every walk of life are anxious about the local economy. A girl can't always meet her quota, and hotel security's a lot more challenging than it was last summer. So, feeling ambivalent about having a baby with Matt, Nancy accepts an offer to travel with Milton, her most favoured customer, to the South of France, where he has recently purchased a vacation home. Besides, it's ego-enhancing to be offered big bucks by a hugely successful guy and whilst Nancy has resisted travelling with her johns in the past, she now jumps at the chance to leave New York.Using her own mother as an alibi, Nancy tells Matt that Mom (divorced, running a B&B in Wales) has planned a mother-daughter vacation in the South of France, so they can check out some property together. In reality, we find Nancy and her friends getting up to some unwholesome frolics in Milt’s pad, with a new cast of colourful characters – including an international madam living in St-Tropez – and a startling romantic collision involving Duncan, Milt’s cook, to keep things interesting.
