It's All Right Now is the tale of Tom Ripple, an ordinary man living an ordinary life, and one of the most brilliantly realised characters in recent fiction. Beginning in a suburb of North London in the 1970s we follow his life to the present day, seeing through Tom's own eyes his rich and complex relationships with his wife and children, his neighbours, girlfriends, colleagues and friends, and his continuous search for certainties - both moral and practical. But what Tom gains in wisdom over the years, he loses in love as his marriage disintegrates, his children disappoint him and then in turn are disappointed. Tom's insights into the human condition bring great poignancy yet give us a sense of transcendence, while his story brilliantly dramatizes the profound changes that have taken place in this country in the last 30 years.

Genre: General Fiction
