We haven’t read this yet, but the debut novel by British author Yvette Edwards, Cupboard Full Of Coats, was longlisted for the 2011 Man Booker Prize, so we have to assume it’s on a level. It was released here in the States last month. Here’s a blurb on the book:
Edwards’s debut novel, A Cupboard Full of Coats, introduces Jinx, whose mother was stabbed to death in their East London home fourteen years ago. Jinx has lived with a huge burden of guilt and anger ever since. When an old friend of her mother, Lemon, turns up, wanting to explore what happened that night, Jinx sees an opportunity to move on. But Lemon brings some startling new facts to the story, laying bare a past of jealousy and tragic betrayal.
