Keefie

ByKen Champion

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
After his widely acclaimed novella, The Dramaturgical Metaphor, an existential thriller which sees psychoanalyst James Kent embark on a dark and disturbing European journey, Champion’s new offering, Keefie, occupies very different territory. Opening amongst the narrow, grimy, tree-free streets of 1930s East London where his titular hero is growing up and making sense of his world in the run-up to war, Champion brilliantly captures the claustrophobic life of work, traditional gender roles and family amongst the white working class that once dominated these neighbourhoods, deploying his mastery of conversation to powerful effect as he anatomises the rules, restrictions and unspoken resentments that define a tightly bounded, long lost world. A second narrative, initially located in New York, collides with the first in rural East Anglia which sees a blue collar lecturer on an intellectual journey that probes identity and the inherent contradictions between nature and nurture.
