Описание

Lily's epilepsy means she's used to seeing the world in terms of angles - you look at every surface, you weigh up every corner, and you think of your head slamming into it - but what would she be like without her sharp edges? Prickly, spiky, up-front honest and down-to-earth practical, Lily is thirty, and life's not easy but she gets by. Gets on with it. Has to - what choice is there? So she's learned to make do, to make the most of things, to look after - and out for - herself: coping, managing, and surviving, and needing no-one and asking for nothing. Just her and her epilepsy: her constant companion. But then her mother - who Lily's not seen for years - dies, and Lily is drawn back into a world she thought she'd long since left behind. At the same time, however, it's also somewhere disturbingly unfamiliar: newly reunited with one of her brothers, and hoping to track down the other, Lily is no longer alone. Forced to renegotiate the boundaries of her life, she realises she has a lot to learn - about relationships, about the past, and about herself - and some difficult decisions ahead of her. "Electricity" is Lily's story; told in fits and starts, it's an edgy, compelling novel, and a distinctive debut.
