Alison Macleod on Unexploded, Kings Place

February 24, 2014 @ 5:30 pm

Brighton, summer 1940. Fear of invasion brings unspoken desires to the surface as a middle-class English family anxiously awaits news. Geoffrey falls in love with a prostitute he suspects is a Jew; Evelyn is attracted to a ‘degenerate’ German-Jewish painter held in an internment camp.  An exploration of chaos and xenophobia in an ordinary town, Unexploded was long-listed for the 2013 Man Booker Prize.
