In Portobello, London, a haunting and magnetic attraction entwines the lives of Mary Grimes, a 75-year-old British spinster, and Cub, a 13-year-old Jamaican boy from Brixton. Set post September 11th, The Living Days juxtaposes biting social realism and gothic romance as phantoms and fantasies mix with the escalating effects of racism and poverty. Devi?s London is a city of chimeras, alternatively bleak and exquisite, and the protagonists struggle to keep their footing in the glitzy, and treacherous, capital. This lyrical, unsettling, and at times horrific novel will serve its semi-nostalgic power as Brexit negotiations are carried out or upended.
