Everything surrounding Marnie is disappearing. Her father – a schizophrenic writer – has gone missing, as have the cats in her neighbourhood (including her own, Mr. Knuckles). But where have they gone? Have they been kidnapped, or scared away?
Justine Kilkerr’s debut novel, Advice for Strays, is a delicate and imaginative tale that will leave you feeling mystified yet warmed. Anyone who had an imaginary friend as a child will be able to step into Marnie’s mind as she forms an attachment with Jericho, a make-believe lion.
Each page of this original and somehow haunting novel is laced with feelings of nostalgia and loss, emotions that every human being can relate to. We recommend getting lost in Advice for Strays as you curl up by the fire on a rainy Sunday afternoon.
