'East of Nowhere is a novel of wonderful surprises, an emotional see-saw that can be very funny, very sad and very brutal. This is a story about a love that shouldn't work at all, but triumphs against the odds.' Michael PalinThis is the story of how a bad man called Edward Miller lost his job, his house, his wife, his hair and his front teeth, but in the process became good. It is the story of how, in his only ever truly selfless act, Edward risks all to save the woman he loves. In East of Nowhere, Robert Chalmers has created a dazzling ensemble cast of characters in a unique fiction for our times. It is as mordantly funny as it is breathtakingly true.
Robert Chalmers was brought up in Manchester. His first novel, Who's Who in Hell was published by Atlantic Books. He lives in London.
