Akin by Emma Donoghue



ISBN: 9781529019964 Category: Tags: ,


Bestselling author of Room Emma Donoghue returns with Akin a brilliant tale of love loss and family. Noah is only days away from his first trip back to Nice since he was a child when a social worker calls looking for a temporary home for Michael his eleven-year-old great-nephew. Though he has never met the boy he gets talked into taking him along to France. This odd couple suffering from jet lag and culture shock argue about everything from steak hache to screen time and the trip is looking like a disaster. But as Michael’s sharp eye and ease with tech help Noah unearth troubling details about their family’s past both come to grasp the risks that loved ones take for one another and find they are more akin than they knew. Written with all the tenderness and psychological intensity that made Room a huge bestseller Akin is a funny heart-wrenching tale of an old man and a young boy who unpick their painful stories and embark on writing a new one together.
