Mo Said She Was Quirky
Mo said she was quirky is a new novel by Booker prizewinner James Kelman. Her boyfriend said she was quirky but it was more than that. Some things were important in life. You had to fight for them. Helen was prepared for that - only she wasn't as strong as people thought. Working nightshift as a dealer in a London casino didn't help. Her young daughter at home in bed - just how safe was she? The gamblers staring you down, night after night after night. Then on the way home from work this tall, skinny, down-at-heel guy crossed the road in front of her taxi. Brian? Her long-lost brother? How could it be? Twenty-four hours in the life of Helen, an ordinary young woman - as ordinary, as unique, as each and every one of us.
