Eating Blackbirds

By Lorraine Jenkin

'Modern, gentle, funny and revealing' County Times

Fiction, Novels



Sixteen and with a newborn daughter, Georgia's been kicked out of her city squat. But she'd rather suffer her Uncle God's supermarket shampoo and recycled tea-bags than go home to her mum and be reminded of the incident.

After a lifetime's scrimping and saving, early retirement looms for Godfrey Palmer and his colleagues in Council Tax are in for one hell of a shock.

For Mansel Big Face, 'Ducks 'n' Dogshit' officer, it's time to climb out of the Superman tights and face the music. Time to come to the rescue not cause the accident.

When Georgia turns up on Godfrey's doorstep she doesn't realise quite what a catalyst for change she's going to be...


'funny and feel-good... gloriously off-the-wall plot'

'a novel to delight in for one reason after another - starting with its ability to make this reviewer laugh out loud... feel-good as well as funny and a rollicking read that's hard to put down'
