Waterstones Says

Sensual and wryly perceptive, the acclaimed author of Saltwater delivers a deftly wrought and emotionally devastating account of a life lived in the shadows and a potential salvation in the Mediterranean sun.

From the author of the award-winning Saltwater comes a beautifully told love story set across England, France and Spain.

A girl grows up in the north of England amid scarcity, precarity and the toxic culture of heroin chic, believing that she needs to make herself smaller to claim presence in the world.

Years later, as a young woman with unattainable ideals, she meets someone who calls everything into question, and is forced to confront episodes from her past. Their relationship takes her from London to Barcelona and the precipice of a new life, full of sensuality. Yet she still feels an uneasiness. In the sticky Mediterranean heat, among tropical plants and secluded beaches, she must decide what form her adult life should take and learn how to feel deserving of love and care.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Gorgeous... Andrews's writing is transportingly voluptuous, conjuring tastes and smells and sounds like her literary godmother, Edna O'Brien.' - New York Times on Saltwater

“A dreamy, character-based book”

It’s official, I love Jessica Andrews.

Like Saltwater (also by Andrews, also loved), Milk Teeth has a dreamlike and meandering character-based plot. Andrews writes with such lyricism that a grotty house party in a... More
