A. L. Kennedy

  • As if we lived in a merciful land
  • Literature

Should you be merciful to the merciless? Anna teaches at an elementary school and still wants to make the world a better place. Like 25 years ago, when she demonstrated in Edinburgh with a group of street artists against the English government’s anti-environmental policies. What she didn’t know: one of them was a V-man who denounced them all. Now she is pursuing the traitor. But where does the evil reach – and can Anna keep herself free of it? A masterpiece of moral disquiet. In her inimitable style, combining irony and empathy, A. L. Kennedy tells of the possibility of people’s love for one another.

A. L. Kennedy is one of the most important contemporary British authors, she has received significant literary awards. In addition to novels and short stories, she also writes children’s books and teaches creative writing at the University of Warwick.
