9780571329793: Yuki Chan in Bronte Country

"Unconventional, highly readable, often very funny and strangely touching ...it's the kind of book you can't stop reading but don't want to finish." (Sue Gaisford, Financial Times). The new novel from Mick Jackson, Booker Prize-shortlisted author of The Underground Man and Ten Sorry Tales. 'They both stop and stare for a moment. Yuki feels she's spent about half her adult life thinking about snow, but when it starts, even now, it's always arresting, bewildering. Each snowflake skating along some invisible plane. Always circuitous, as if looking for the best place to land...' Yukiko tragically lost her mother ten years ago. After visiting her sister in London, she goes on the run, and heads for Haworth, West Yorkshire, the last place her mother visited before her death. Against a cold, winter, Yorkshire landscape, Yuki has to tackle the mystery of her mother's death, her burgeoning friendship with a local girl, the allure of the Brontes and her own sister's wrath.

Review:

[An] unconventional. highly readable, often very funny and strangely touching novel. Since winning the Authors' Club Best First Novel prize with The Underground Man 1997, Mick Jackson's work has been increasingly characterised by a perceptive humanity, laced with sly wit and presented with irresistible dynamism, and this is no exception ... It's the kind of book you can't stop reading but don't want to finish.’ Sue Gaisford Financial Times

'Jackson is a superb writer with a gift for dialogue.' Paula Byrne The Times

'There are some lovely ideas in Mick Jackson's latest novel, befitting the mercurial, fretful nature of its narrator.' Eithne Farry Mail on Sunday

The psychic detective story soon becomes an engrossing one of a motherless young girl finding her way in the world and dealing with her grief.’ Antonia Charlesworth Big Issue North
