"This has an ingeniously constructed plot and enough real emotional heft to lift it above the Cold Feet
herd." (The Daily Telegraph
Can we ever be truly in control of our own destinies, or are our lives entirely shaped by random events and unknown people? Small World
is an entirely contemporary and engrossing page-turner which explores universal themes of love, death, friendship, marriage, madness, and redemption, unifying them all through this central question.
From the Back Cover
This is the story of a woman desperate for a baby, a stalker desperate for the woman and an au pair desperate for a new nose; a shoplifting sales assistant, a God-fearing nurse and a self-loathing policeman; a washed-up comedian, a luckless dope dealer and a murderer.
It's a story about a world where - whether you know it or not, and usually you don't - you are only ever two steps away from death or redemption. In short, it is a story about us, and the world we all live in.
