Breakfast in Brighton
Gollancz 1998, Phoenix pbk 1999


A woozy tribute to the state of mind induced by being in Brighton. The summer after my father died I spent several months there, resuming an infatuation with the place I had started in my teens. Brighton more than met me half way, offering up well-meant love tokens - paintings (see, below right, 'Breakfast in Brighton' by Edward le Bas), garrets, ugly fish that take an age to die and a succession of charmingly skewed people. This is the story of bountiful months, gilded here and there and interwoven with histories and other lives and mad hopeful fictions.
