Description: "Outstanding . . . tender, sexy and alarming."-Jim Crace When Alfred White, patriarch of the White family, collapses at work, his wife, May, and their three disparate children find themselves confronting issues they would rather ignore. Maggie Gee skillfully weaves a narrative that reminds us that racism not only devastates the lives of its victims, but also those of its perpetrators. Maggie Gee is the first female chair of the Royal Society of Literature and lives in London. "The White Family" was shortlisted for the Orange Broadband Prize for Fiction and the IMPAC Award. "The Flood" was longlisted for the Orange Prize.
