Introducing...Odeline Milk, a strange young lady from a sleepy, buttoned-down market town. A young lady with an obsession - you can guess what it is by the way she dresses: white collarless shirt, a waistcoat and billowing black trousers, the bowler hat. She's on her way to London, to make her name as a great mime artist. She hopes. And typical Odeline, she's arriving prepared. With the small inheritance left her by her mother, she's bought herself a home, an old canal boat. What she doesn't know yet is that for some the city's canals have an appeal of their own. They are below the eyeline, a sort of halfworld, a good place to hide for a community of curious outsiders, all with their own stories to tell, stories which might help a certain young lady to think differently about life. Because there's a lot Odeline doesn't know. Not least, that her new home has a history of its own.

When eighteen-year-old Odeline Milk is left orphaned by her mother, she takes her small inheritance and leaves her sleepy hometown behind in search of a lifestyle better suited to her artistic temperament. She moves to London to pursue her single-minded dream of becoming, of all things, a great mime in the tradition of Charlie Chaplin and Marcel Marceau. But like many a solitary wanderer before her, Odeline finds that the London of her imagination isn't quite consistent with the reality. To save money she moves onto a longboat, auspiciously named Chaplin and Company, in London's canal neighborhood of Little Venice. There she stumbles upon a peculiar underbelly of the city, full of marginalized, eccentric figures. A stern young woman, Odeline is serious about her art and uninterested in forming what she considers to be distracting new relationships. But little by little, Odeline begins to form unpredictable alliances with those around her-the beleaguered illegal immigrant, the handsome vagabond, and the vulnerable old drunk. Before she knows it, Odeline becomes an essential part of this community of outsiders, discovering the value of companionship and, more important, the depths of her own courage. Extraordinary newcomer Mave Fellowes travels gracefully between Odeline's story and those of the lost souls around her, charting the course of each one's haunted past and their halting progress toward redemption. With astonishing empathy, Fellowes shows that everyone has a story, and sometimes loneliness itself is what connects us to each other. An endearing and surprisingly steely debut that paints the bizarre and the ordinary with equal sincerity, Chaplin & Company is a novel that reveals beauty in the most unlikely of places.
