A Cupboard Full of Coats

£8.99   paperback  Oneworld Publications (2011)

A Cupboard Full of Coats by Yvvette Edwards LONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2011
 
For fourteen years Jinx has been haunted by the brutal murder of her mother. Crushed by the weight of loss and guilt, she is unable to move on from the memories of her childhood that are poisoning her life and all her relationships. The sudden arrival of Lemon, an old friend of her mother’s, changes everything. He wants to talk about that night and he won’t leave until she’s shared her story – her whole story.
 
Over the course of one searing weekend they strip away the layers of the past to lay bare a family drama full of jealousy and tragic betrayal. Fuelled by Lemon’s sumptuous cooking and intoxicating story-telling the intensity mounts and dark secrets are uncovered. But as Jinx’s life threatens to fall apart for a second time, she finally begins to believe that redemption may be within her grasp.
 
Blending true East London spirit with a heady Caribbean spice, Edwards has crafted a novel of breathtaking elegance, announcing a fierce new talent in British fiction.
