Peggy Frew’s Islands

Peggy Frew features on today’s episode discussing her new novel Islands.

We are not Islands

Islands is the story of a family; Helen and John, their daughters June and Anna. A family who like any other love and quarrel and are not perfect in the ways that you can only be with loved ones. Then one night, fifteen year old Anna doesn’t return home and the family’s lives are inexorably defined by that moment forevermore…

What follows is Peggy Frew’s examination of the ways we live our lives inside a tragedy that never ends. With loss at its heart, Islands is rich with stylistic invention and creative form.
