The White Stuff Reviews


Felix and Hannah are trying for a baby, without much luck. This Felix can live with, but not Hannah. So together they travel from their Pennines home out into a wider Britain, searching for a baby as well as for Hannah's own mother, for Hannah was an adopted child. Two journeys in search of a family that move across a contemporary landscape that will be familiar to readers from the author's previous prose works. Simon Armitage is famous for his poetry, of course, but also for the travel book/memoir All Points North and one previous novel, Little Green Man (currently being filmed by the BBC). It is quite possible that in a few years time he will be better known, at least to a wider audience, as a novelist who started out writing poetry.
