Alive in a merciful Country

In her novel, A.L. Kennedy “takes us on a tour of contemporary British society” (SWR). Anna teaches at a primary school and would still like to change the world, just as she did twenty-five years ago in Edinburgh demonstrating with a group of street musicians against the English government´s social and war policies. What she never suspected then: her group had been infiltrated by an undercover policeman who betrayed them all. Now she is out for revenge. But how far is she prepared to go – and can she emerge untainted? “A book for our time, both literarily and socially.” (FAZ)
