About the Book: A Cupboard Full of Coats
Redolent of Monica Ali and Zadie Smith, Yvvette Edwardss bold debut is a searing story of family, jealousy, and tragic betrayal.
“”He just knocked, that was all, knocked at the front door and waited, like the fourteen years since the night Id killed my mother hadnt happened at all…””
Crushed by an impossible shame, Jinxs life has been little more than a shell; estranged from her husband, she is even relieved when he takes her young son with him.
When Lemon, an old friend of her mothers, turns up on her doorstep, Jinx is forced to confront her past, and with the pain of remembrance comes the possibility of redemption. But Lemon has his own secrets to share, and together they unravel an unforgettable family drama, stoked with violence and passion.
Rich with voices from East London and the West Indies, Edwardss narrative is delivered with a unique and uncompromising bite that announces a new talent in British fiction.
