When Sam falls in love with Deptford thug Derek, and Anne's best friend Kathleen takes her own life, they discover they are linked not just by a world of drugs and revenge; they also share the friendship of the uncanny and enigmatic Deborah. Seamstress, sailor, story-teller and self-proclaimed centenarian immortal, Deborah slowly reveals to Anne and Sam her improbable, fantastical life, a history of hidden Deptford and ultimately the solution to their crises. With echoes of Armistead Maupin, Attend is a beautifully written, darkly funny, mesmerisingly emotive and deliciously told debut novel, rich in finely wrought characters that you will never forget. `A literary EastEnders, with precision language and beautifully interwoven storytelling ... I couldn't put it down' Liz Loves Books

“Amazing”

I have never read anything like this book before. I had expected it to be a crime novel with mention of drug related crime in the synopsis. But, while there is violence it is more about the emotion that the acts... More

“An Excellent Debut”

It is clear from reading Attend that the author West Camel (person not the place in Somerset) has taken to heart the Stephen King idiom of read, read and read some more, and then when you think you know how to write,... More
