Whitbread Prize Best First Novel (nominee)
After months away, Emily returns to London and to a family on the verge of disintegration. She spends nights in cramped bars, drinking and smoking with her beautiful but damaged boyfriend Tom and his friends. It is a lifestyle that leaves her feeling directionless and jaded. In her search to believe in something or someone, she finds herself irresistibly drawn to Simon, Tom's complex and charming cousin. But Simon is married, and as he and Emily become closer and the summer draws to an end they are forced to make decisions that will have a devastating effect on both families.

In prose that is by turns mournful and joyous, Talitha Stevenson has created a moral maze of subtle beauty. Full of insight and compassion, AN EMPTY ROOM is a startling debut.

    

"An Empty Room tells us something significant about the furies and hurts of first love." - Elizabeth Buchan
