9780007562473: Of Things Gone Astray

Here is a quirky and fantastical novel about things lost and things found from a startling new voice in fiction.

On a seemingly normal morning in London, a group of people all lose something dear to them, something dear but peculiar: the front of their house, their piano keys, their sense of direction, their place of work.

Meanwhile, Jake, a young boy whose father brings him to London following his mother’s sudden death, finds himself strangely attracted to other people’s lost things. But little does he realize that his most valuable possession, his relationship with his father, is slipping away from him.

Of Things Gone Astray is a magical fable about modern life and values and finding the things that really matter.

About the Author:

Janina Matthewson is a writer and trained actress from Christchurch, New Zealand. She now lives in London. Of Things Gone Astray is her first full-length novel.

Review:

“A brilliant novel that redefines the boundaries of where our lives begin and where they end." –Simon Van Booy, bestselling author of The Illusion of Separateness

‘Of Things Gone Astray may be Janina Matthewson’s first novel, but it marks her out as a writer to follow ... Reality, fantasy and imagery intermingle to create a beautiful whole.’ WE LOVE THIS BOOK

‘Refreshing and spare, like a bittersweet melody echoing in an empty hallway, Matthewson's debut novel will linger in the reader's memory.’ KIRKUS
