Summary
"[A] gorgeously lyrical debut novel....Engrossing and human to the core, Edwards's novel wrings the heart in the most tender of ways."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)"The novel is high drama, full of breathtaking tension, and, at times, brought to mind the works of Arthur Miller and August Wilson, both of whom knew a thing or two about secrets spilled across a kitchen table."—Attica Locke, author of Black Water RisingSoon the name on every fiction lover's lips will be Yvvette Edwards, thanks to her extraordinary debut novel, A Cupboard Full of Coats. Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize, one of Great Britain's most prestigious literary awards, and named one of Kirkus Review's Best Books of the Year, Edwards's powerful first novel is at once a poignant family drama and a gripping mystery—page-turning literature with an exhilarating infusion of noir. It is the story of Jinx, who believes she played a pivotal role in her mother's murder, until an old acquaintance appears at her door with seductive air, a long, strange story, and, quite possibly, the bitter truth. A truly stunning work of contemporary literary fiction that packs an emotional punch and keeps readers guessing to the end, A Cupboard Full of Coats is already being compared by critics to the novels of the master, Ruth Rendell
