An Unfamiliar Landscape
by Amanda Huggins
Stories from the city, the sea, the forest; stories from places where everything is not always as it first appears…
From a rain-soaked Berlin to a neon-lit Tokyo, the midwest of North America to the Parisian backstreets, a suburban London kitchen to a fishing village on the Yorkshire coast, wherever these characters are travelling from or to, they are all navigating unfamiliar ground in search of answers. These are stories of yearning to belong, of the urge to escape – tales of grief and alienation, of loss and betrayal, love and hope.
“Amanda writes with empathy, an eye for vivid detail, a sense of adventure, and great charm.” – Alison Moore, Booker-shortlisted author of The Lighthouse
“Huggins writes with an attentive, painterly touch for the emotional details of her characters’ lives.” – Rónán Hession, author of Leonard and Hungry Paul
“Beauty is never squandered in Huggins’s work. This is a writer who grasps it, weaves it through in the details of lives.” – Angela Readman, author of Something Like Breathing
