Saving Agnes

£8.99

Agnes Day is a 20-something sub-editor and failure extraordinaire, with a close circle of friends and a habit of falling for the wrong man. Terminally middle-class, incurably romantic and chronically confused by life’s most basic equations, Agnes hovers on the cusp of adolescence and adulthood, privately convinced of her inadequacy but publicly passing herself off as a success. When the twin strains of a first job and a love affair doomed to failure provoke a spiritual crisis, Agnes sets out to save herself and all those around her.

Description

Winner of the Whitbread First Novel Award

Agnes Day Рsub-editor, suburbanite, failure extraordinaire Рhas discovered disconcerting gaps in her general understanding of the world. Terminally middle-class and incurably romantic, Agnes finds herself chronically confused by the most basic interactions. Life and love go on without her, but with a little fa̤ade she can pass herself off as a success. Beneath the fiction, however, the burden of truth becomes harder to bear.
