by Andrew O'Hagan

Luke has left the army for good and travelled to Blackpool with Anne to locate her lost archive, along the way uncovering the tragedy which led to her giving up photography.

Andrew O'Hagan's novel follows 82-year old Anne Quirk, a forgotten pioneer of documentary photography who lives in sheltered housing on the west coast of Scotland. A planned retrospective stirs long-buried memories and leads her grandson to uncover the tragedy in her past which has defined three generations.
