Pagan and Her Parents

by Michael Arditti
£7.99   paperback  Arcadia Books (2011)

Pagan and Her Parents by Michael Arditti Michael Arditti's moving, passionate and provocative novel was hugely acclaimed on its first appearance in 1996.
 
Candida Mulliner and Leo Young have been the closest of friends since university, living together but loving separately. When Candida dies after a long illness, she leaves her five-year-old daughter, Pagan, in Leo's care. Candida's adoptive parents are horrified. Refusing to accept that a gay man is a suitable person to bring up a child, they challenge Leo's guardianship in the courts. As Leo fights for his and Pagan's rights, he finds himself isolated, vilified and, ultimately, arrested. Meanwhile, he sets out to discover the truth about Candida, the cause of her estrangement from her adoptive parents, the identity of her natural mother and the reasons for her refusal to name Pagan's father.
 
Michael Arditti's moving, passionate and provocative novel was hugely acclaimed on its first appearance in 1996. Its timely reissue brings its powerful exploration of the nature of parenthood and meaning of family life to a new generation of readers.
