Long-listed for the 2011 Man Booker Prize is Yvvette Edwards’ ‘A Cupboard Full of Coats’.
Crushed by an impossible shame, Jinx’s life feels hollow. Estranged from her husband, she is even relieved when he takes her young son with him.
When facing Lemon, an old friend of her mother’s, Jinx confronts her past, and with the pain of remembrance comes the possibility of redemption.
But Lemon has his own secrets to share, and together they unravel an unforgettable family drama, stoked with violence and passion.
Rich with voices from East London and the West Indies, Edwards’ narrative has an uncompromising bite that announces a new talent in British fiction.
