Luke Kennard

-  

Black Mirror meets David Nicholls in this dark and funny novel about love in dystopian times LONGLISTED FOR THE DESMOND ELLIOTT PRIZE FOR FICTION Karl has let his debts get wildly out of control and, in desperation, has sort of semi-accidentally committed credit-card fraud. Now he could have to go to prison, so when he and his wife Genevieve are instead offered a place on a mysterious self-improvement scheme called The Transition, they agree. It's only six months, after all, and at first all it requires is that they give up their credit cards and move into the spare room of their 'mentors', Janna and Stu, who seem perfectly lovely ...'A total page-turner' Nathan Filer , author of The Shock of the Fall 'The sort of book that has you walking blindly through seven lanes of traffic with your face pressed obliviously to the page' The Times 'Very funny, compassionate and scathing. Just the ticket for fans of Jonathan Coe' Laline Paull, author of The Bees 'Richly enjoyable, tenderly devastating' Guardian
