Tragic and hilarious in equal measure, Tim Lott's story of Charlie and Maureen Buck's ailing marriage and their climb up (and down) the social ladder during the 1980s is a wonderfully honest portrait of ordinary people living through an extraordinary time.
Steeped in the decade's cataclysmic events, packed with the crimes and misdemeanours we visit on each another, "Rumours of a Hurricane" is a powerful tale of change, how we face it - and how we don't. 'An outstanding comic novel. Places the 1980s under sceptical and merciless scrutiny' - "Literary Review".
