A Dry Spell

(2000)
A novel by

 
An irresistible comedy of modern life by the award-winning author of Learning to Swim.

In 1976 four students took a trip to the desert. Now the repercussions of that fateful summer are coming back to haunt them. And repercussions are just what Guy doesn't need: his wife, Jane, is moving swiftly from eccentric to downright peculiar, their three-year-old daughter seems set on destroying Jane's sanity, and now even God's gone quiet on him. As for Nina, she's having enough trouble with her son, James. He's got exams looming, a new girlfriend with pneumatic breasts and he's on drugs. Nina certainly won't welcome any ghosts from the past. Life isn't going smoothly for anyone. But when Hugo, long-forgotten agent of misfortune, threatens to pay them all a visit, disaster seems unavoidable.
