In Basildon

Front Cover
Bloomsbury Publishing, Feb 15, 2012 - Drama - 128 pages
0 Reviews
'In Basildon' is full of explosive family dynamics and knotty relationships, embracing history, emotion and a strong sense of homeland. This depiction of indigenous Essex dwellers is uncompromising and at times harsh, but Eldridge also elicits deep sympathy for his characters as they face death, grief and crumbling familial bonds.
