Alandra Varinia

In the sequel to The Most Singular Adventures of Sarah Lloyd, we meet Alandra Varinia Saunderson, the illegitimate daughter of Sarah Lloyd and Seamus O"Rafferty, both of whom worked for the IRA and both of whom are dead. Alandra works in a bank in Camberwell for the manager, who is a dirty old man. She spends her spare time trying to trace the whereabouts of her half-siblings. As the book progresses we become ever more aware of Alandra"s retrograde personality, inherited from her mother. This book is funny and tragic by turns, and describes the extremely eventful life of a thuggish but likeable young woman.

"Eleanor Berry manages to maintain her raw and haunting wit as much as ever"
