Flying Sparks

a novel

“We’re all just flying sparks, Curly, for the brief moment we call life."

Elvira wasn’t even seventeen when she had her first child, and eighteen when she had her second. The father has long since returned to Jamaica by the time she gives birth to Curly, her third child. And although Elvira fails to get a grip on her own life, her sons make their way in the world – until model student Kevin falls in love with his Turkish school friend Aicha. When it becomes apparent she is pregnant, her parents insist on an abortion, but Kevin and Aicha are determined to have the baby as well as finishing school. They find temporary shelter in a casino and what happens there is nothing short of a miracle. The couple gets support from entirely unexpected quarters – including Elvira herself, who gradually emerges from her lethargy...

A modern fairy tale about a working class family living on the breadline. Their hearts are in the right place, but they have next to no chance to break free of their constraints. Yet as their lives go from bad to worse, more and more people around them begin to open up and abandon their prejudices.
