Panther

by David Owen - £7.99  Little, Brown Book Group (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780349002743 | ISBN 10: 0349002746

An important and powerful story told in striking and original prose, Panther is an honest, funny, unsentimental look at how depression affects those around the sufferer, especially when we don't talk about it.
 
Life isn't going terribly well for Derrick; he's become severely overweight, his only friend has turned on him, he's hopelessly in love with a girl way out of his league, and it's all because of his sister. Her depression, and its grip on his family, is tearing his life apart. When rumours start to circulate that a panther is roaming wild in his south London suburb, Derrick resolves to turn capture it. Surely if he can find a way to tame this beast, he'll be able to stop everything at home from spiraling towards disaster?
 
Panther is a bold and emotionally powerful novel that deals candidly with the effects of depression on those who suffer from it, and those who suffer alongside them.
