- GETTING COLDER : SOMETIMES THE HARDER YOU LOOK, THE LESS YOU FIND
DetailsThey were colour-supplement darlings of the 1980's: Patrick, the sexy, ferocious young playwright, scourge of an enthralled establishment, and Sara, who abandoned her two children to fulfil her destiny as Patricks beautiful, devoted wife and muse.Thirty-five years later, Saras death leaves Patrick alone in their crumbling house in Cornwall, with his whisky, his writers block and his undimmed rage against the world. But bereavement is no respecter of life's estrangements, and Saras children, Louise and Nigel, are now adults, with memories, questions and agendas of their own.What was their mother really like?Why did she leave them?What has she left them?And how can Patrick carry on without the love of his life?Getting Colder is a painfully funny and perceptive novel about family, love, and how sometimes the harder you look, the less you find.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Amanda Coe is an acclaimed screenwriter and author who in 2013 won a BAFTA for the BBC Four adaptation of John Braines Room at the Top, starring Maxine Peake.
