Bottled Goods

by Sophie van Llewyn
£7.99   paperback  Fairlight Books (2018)

Bottled Goods by Sophie van Llewyn Longlisted for The People’s Book Prize.
 
Alina’s life was on the right track, until the secret service knocked on her door.
 
When Alina’s brother-in-law defects to the West, she and her husband become persons of interest to the secret services, causing both of their careers to come grinding to a halt.
 
As the strain takes its toll on their marriage, Alina turns to her aunt for help – the wife of a communist leader and a secret practitioner of the old folk ways.
 
Set in 1970s communist Romania, Sophie van Llewyn’s novella-in-flash draws upon magic realism to weave a tale of everyday troubles, that can’t be put down.
