Kathy Biggs Signs Next Novel with Honno
Author of The Luck will be publishing her second novel this June
Honno is excited to announce that we have signed Kathy Biggs’ second novel Scrap. A pacy story that follows Mackie, foster-carer to his two grand-daughters, and working in a scrap yard. One day he finds a young boy with clairvoyant powers, seemingly abandoned in an old Merc and suddenly life gets a lot more interesting.
Set in a Swansea scrapyard during a July heatwave, Scrap is a story about how broken people can be mended. Over the course of a fortnight, the lives of the scrap workers are transformed from poverty and hardship to something full of hope for the future.
Funny, disturbing, real, devastating and unexpected, this is a truly original and very imaginative book that will have you crying both with laughter and sadness in equal measure.
