Overview

Laura Cassady is a top girl, the best. Here, in our final year of university, with childhood behind us and real life looming, she is the only thing I am certain of. That she already has a boyfriend, James, is the least of my worries.

The real problem is trying to be more than just a boy for someone who is clearly not just a girl. Can boys be anything but thoughtless and selfish? Are all girls uptight and painfully beautiful? And is there any way that we can cohabit adequately, let alone happily?

Through pub-talk and ice-skating, nights in and nights out, we might find it more and more likely that we're all after the same thing: making one positive action, finding our right place.

Chatty and arch, Banes of Boys And Girls is a tale of first love, of decision-making, and of the certainty of youth as it is reborn into the confusion of young adulthood. It is the “impressive", "sharp and intelligent” debut novel by Jonathan Aldridge.

Editorial Reviews

Editor, Frogmore Papers - Jeremy Page
Jonathan Aldridge has a confident, distinctive narrative voice and an engaging, deceptively simple narrative style. Here is a writer who is clearly fascinated by the possibilities of language, and who relishes them.
www.amazon.co.uk - Amazon Reviewer
Excellent. Following an intriguing collection of young characters. I stumbled upon this, it is a great read from a new author to me. Would like to read more - does anybody know of somewhere I can get other work by Aldridge?
