A first novel, Falling Upwards is a tale of obsession both darkly comic and quirky: two years after her husband abandons her for another woman, Sophie Luce is descending into depression, her drinking increasingly out of control. Her teenage son has left for university and, apart from Anya, her eccentric Polish lodger, she lives alone in a rambling house in Crouch End, north London, struggling to cope. The upstairs boiler breaks down and Sophie's quest for a solution catapults her into an unexpected and bizarre chain of events, macabre and dramatic, that change her life for ever . . .
