Winterton Blue Summary


Winterton Blue by Trezza Azzopardi

Lewis has a problem, and it won't go away. He knows exactly when it started: when he and his twin brother were racing in a stolen car driven by the sociopathic Carl, and teenage twoc-ing turned to tragedy. Lewis had to learn to face the world alone - which he has done with a limited amount of success.

Anna's immediate problem is her mother, Rita, who runs a boarding house in Yarmouth. She has suffered a fall, and really ought to be cared for by someone other than her only paying guest (if that is indeed his status), the retired music-hall star Vernon Savoy (aka 'Cabbage', ho ho). So Anna leaves her London life behind and grimly sets off to do her duty.

As Lewis and Anna, both solitary drifters, search for solutions, their lives become entangled in the most unexpected ways, and they find themselves having to face troubling truths about who they are, how they got there and what they might become - with electrifying consequences.

Told against the backdrop of the Norfolk coast, with its huge skies and the silver-grey North Sea pounding at its shores, Winterton Blue is an enthralling novel from the Booker-shortlisted author of The Hiding Place and Remember Me. In prose that touches the sublime, Trezza Azzopardi tells a haunting, funny and sad story, one that never lets the reader go.

Praise for Remember Me: 'Azzopardi's writing really does glisten on the page, sparkling and dancing in the light . . . This is an often brutal novel that provides both a cerebral and an emotional treat, not something you come across every day . . . remarkable' Sunday Herald
