When the TV makeover people come to call, forty-something green campaigner Tessa is mortified at what they rake up, not only about her wardrobe but also her youthful stay at Greenham Common. Love and Fallout is a hugely entertaining novel from debut novelist and award-winning poet Kathryn Simmonds.
Kathryn Simmonds was born in Hertfordshire and worked in children’s publishing before taking a creative writing MA at the University of East Anglia in 2002. Her collection Sunday at the Skin Launderette won the Forward Prize for best first collection in 2008 and was shortlisted for the Costa Poetry Award and longlisted for the Guardian First Book Award. Her short stories have been published in a number of magazines and broadcast on Radio 4, and she has written an afternoon play for Radio 4 called Poetry for Beginners. She published her second poetry collection, The Visitations, in 2013.
