Luke and Jon

by Robert Williams - £7.99  Faber and Faber (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780571274888 | ISBN 10: 0571274889

Luke’s mum is dead. He finds himself in a small, scruffy northern hill town, with a near silent father, who he fears might be trying to drink himself to death. Then he meets Jon.
 
Jon is strange. He wears 1950s clothes, has a side-parting and a twitch. The kids at school call him ‘Slackjaw’. When Luke discovers Jon’s secret, both their lives are changed for good.
 
The winner of the National Book Tokens’ Not-Yet-Published Prize, Luke and Jon is an arresting debut about friendship, grief and how lives can change forever in a single second. Written with great power, warmth and humour, it signals a hugely engaging and original new voice.
