The Go-Away Bird

Front Cover
HarperCollins Publishers Limited, 2010 - Fiction - 278 pages
Ashley is a 39-year-old English man living in a rough housing estate in central London in 1994, dealing with his stresses by harming himself and trying to make ends meet by teaching singing to a bizarre string of clients. Clementine is a ten-year-old Rwandan girl, who witnesses the murder of her family as genocide devastates her beautiful country. She flees and these two disparate lives that seem destined to run parallel eventually collide offering both a kind of salvation they never imagined possible.
