From the Booker-Prize-winning author of Holiday.
A chance encounter with an old schoolfriend confronting a devastating disease leads Colin Turnbull to reassess his life. Everything had seemed in place: academic brilliance, marriage to his boss's daughter and a formidable career. But, as Colin discovers, these apparent certainties can swiftly evaporate.
“Middleton's use of dialogue is as stylised in it's own way as Hemingway's.he is a novelist who asks you to think as well as feel. There is a stoicism to Middleton's work. He shrinks from nothing.”
“Stanley Middleton writes so well about the concerns of middle-class England”
“Middleton's latest novel is nevertheless an illuminating examinatio n of middle class mores. Small Change also offers an insight into the mind of the kind of fortysomething over-acheiver who thought he was indestructible - but who gradually faces up to his own mortality.”
