VICTORIA PARK by Gemma Reeves on tour August 2021 | AtSite.Store

About Victoria Park

Publisher: Allen & Unwin; Main edition (5 Aug. 2021)

Paperback: 304 pages

Mona and Wolfie have lived on Victoria Park for over fifty years. Now, on the eve of their sixty-fifth wedding anniversary, they must decide how to navigate Mona’s declining health. Bookended by the touching exploration of their love, Victoria Park follows the disparate lives of twelve people over the course of a single year. Told from their multiple perspectives in episodes which capture feelings of alienation and connection, the lingering memory of an acid attack in the park sends ripples of unease through the community. By the end of the novel, their carefully interwoven tales create a rich tapestry of resilience, love and loss.

With sharply observed insight into contemporary urban life, and characters we take to our hearts, Gemma Reeves has written a moving, uplifting debut which reflects those universal experiences that connect us all.

Original, thought-provoking’ – Elizabeth Macneal

‘a delightful read . . . beautifully observed’ – Daily Mail
