Set in contemporary London, it's Bridget Jones meets Matthew Collings with a dash of pure Canadian angst thrown in. A talented young artist is trying to get over the death of her boyfriend on a disastrous trip to Central America. Blackly humorous, Jean McNeil's deeply introspective style and her wild imagination are perfectly suited to this tale of modern Bohemia.
Jean McNeil grew up on Cape Breton Island in Canada but has lived in London since 1991 and has spent long periods living in Latin America. Her first novel Hunting Down Home was published in 1996. She is also the author of the Rough Guide to Costa Rica.
