Please note that due to phenomenal demand, our hand-picked edition of The Dark Flood Rises has now sold out.

Written by the great Margaret Drabble, The Dark Flood Rises is an engrossing novel all about mortality and what happens to us as we grow old. It covers all the existential questions with a dark sense of humour.

Francesca Stubbs is the protagonist and she'll hold your hand as she takes a walk through death and old age. She invites you to join her with drinks with her dear friends, accompany her as she drops off sumptuous suppers for her ex-husband and visit her daughter. She also is in contact with her son in Tenerife, who is dealing with the estate of his shockingly deceased girlfriend.

From what constitutes a good death to understanding if we have lived well, it's a poignant and intelligent slice of literary fiction that is told with characteristic wit.
