A skyhook in the midnight sun
When Caz Hewson chucks in her London life and moves north, she isn't sure what to expect. From her council flat in Galleon Heights on the edge of Newcastle, riding high above the desolate urban landscapes of post -Thatcherite Britain, she discovers to her surprise a warm community and a living history that help her come to terms with the tragedy of her past.Fiona Cooper boldly incorporates elements of fairy tale and legend into her portrayal of Britain in the 90s to produce a novel that is complex as well as comic, savage but full of sympathy.
