Rumours of a Hurricane Summary


Rumours of a Hurricane by Tim Lott

Tragic and hilarious in equal measure, Tim Lott's story of Charlie and Maureen Buck's ailing marriage and their climb up (and down) the social ladder during the 1980s is a wonderfully honest portrait of ordinary people living through an extraordinary time. Steeped in the decade's cataclysmic events, packed with the crimes and misdemeanours we visit on each another, `Rumours of a Hurricane' is a powerful tale of change, how we face it - and how we don't. `An outstanding comic novel. Places the 1980s under sceptical and merciless scrutiny' Literary Review.
