She had no clue what was coming. To be betrayed by her husband and best friend...
If she could speak to them, she would say they have exploded her heart, released firecrackers through her senses. She wishes she could call the police, the ambulance, the fire brigade, to arrest and anaesthetise and waterboard the bastards.
So what happens when your husband runs off with your best friend? When you discover the dead body of an old man halfway through your delivery round? When your house is burgled and you get beaten up? Doris, Andy and Colleen are about to find out. They’re also about to discover that you can find friendship and support in the oddest of places…
Heart-rending, humorous and above all authentic, Distorted Days is an exquisitely written account of the ways in which life can knock you off our feet – and how you can pick yourself up again.
Kirkus Review A formidable work that resists narrative orthodoxy. It was amazing!
I loved this book! Beautifully written about characters you'll want to get to know, once you've met Doris and her friends, you won't forget them. These are ordinary people affected by events that challenge many of us - but the way in which they respond to them is ultimately heart-warming and totally memorable.
Louise Worthington has written a novel that is highly observant of the way people behave and react in different circumstances. In a short space of words, she has managed to cover a huge variety of issues and has written about them in an honest, raw and poignant way. The aftermath, the reactions and the feelings of the characters come across as genuine and gives each character a real depth.
I liked reading this one, because of the high reality factor. The things Doris, Andy and Colleen go through, are things that could happen to any of us.
And then having someone to back you up, it's not something you can take for granted.
it was a bitter sweet story showing that no matter how low you are, when you have the right persons by your side, you can find a way to process it all and become the person you once were again!
