'The Small Histories Of Anya Polgarrick'


Real life fictionalised: Anya Polgarrick, disappointed in life and love, elopes at 16, with an older man whose descent into alcoholism brings violence, isolation and poverty. She struggles to keep herself and her sons safe. When she eventually remarries, it’s not the happy ending she had envisaged.

Happiness, however, does not elude her. Friendships and a random death help to convert her experience and resilience to a gleefully positive force.

 

Trigger warnings: domestic abuse, still birth.

'Adventures In Time And Weather'

 

Most of us are more blessed than we remember. It's in our nature to be aware of what we lack - but with practice we can change that awareness. This is not a How To book, but an invitation to take a walk through a year in which some things go right and some don't.
