The History of Us

by Jonathan Harvey
£7.99   paperback  Pan Macmillan (Pan Books) (2016)

The History of Us by Jonathan Harvey Liverpool 1985
Kathleen, Adam and Jocelyn are three teenage friends who bond over an unconventional nativity play. They all have ambitions, they all have dreams.
Adam wants to be a writer, Jocelyn wants to sing and Kathleen - well, she wants to be an embalmer.
 
London 2015
Kathleen is a borderline alcoholic, Adam is holding on to a shocking secret and Jocelyn is dead. Where did it all go wrong? How did having the world at their feet turn into having the weight of it on their shoulders?
 
Filled with Jonathan Harvey's trademark wit, warmth and outrageous humour, The History of Us is a novel about friendship and secrets, the choices we make and the consequences we face.
