Lovereading view...

Faye and Suzy seem as different as chalk and cheese. They have lived next door to each other all their lives and seem to have nothing but contempt for each other but as we look back at their old feud and how things began we discover a story of sadness, betrayal as well as real friendship. Fascinating, strange and compelling reading.

Synopsis

Churchtown by Anthony Caleshu

LIST OF INGREDIENTS: SORDID, SEXUALLY DEVIANT BEHAVIOUR, LUSCIOUS METAPHOR, COUNTRY & WESTERN SUPERSTAR, 48 YEAR OLD CHILD WITH GOD COMPLEX.

'What's it say above the headboard of Ms. Suzy's bed – over 80 billion served,' is an old joke that's never lost fashion. Faye Fiddle and Suzy Delou have an age-old feud that's coming to a head. Dobby Valentine will see to that, as Chuchtown builds up to an apocalyptic climax, for the second time.

In this incomparable tale, a gross and audacious world is revealed with unique and delicate style.
