9781908643025: Only Strange People Go to Church

"Divine comedy...a joyous celebration of human imperfection" - Louise Welsh. Maria's job is to support Blue Group, an unruly crew of service users. But she might just have bitten off more than she can chew when she suggests they put on a large-scale community show. The venue for the show is to be Ray's workshop, a deconsecrated church where she's constantly distracted by local oddballs and Dezzie, her handsome colleague. Maria soon faces moral dilemmas that would curl a bishop's hair. If she does 'the right thing' she'll wreck careers and break hearts - but what's 'the right thing' anyway? Who decides who's allowed to love who? And can Ray even be trusted?

About the Author:

Laura Marney tries to do a good deed every day. Occasionally bad deeds do accidentally slip in, but there you go, nobody's perfect. She is the author of four novels: No Wonder I Take a Drink, Nobody Loves a Ginger Baby, Only Strange People Go to Church and My Best Friend Has Issues. She also writes short stories and drama for radio and the stage. She lives in Glasgow and holds a part-time post at Glasgow University.

Review:

"Divine comedy... a joyous celebration of human imperfection" - Louise Welsh, author of The Cutting Room "Laura Marney's wickedly dark sense of humour is such that she could write about anything and get away with it. Punchy, pacey - the plot has more kinks than a corkscrew and a strong sense of momentum." - The Scotsman "Hilarious...Read it for the sharp wit and delightfully soft feeling it'll give you" - The Glasgow Herald
