Overview

Noel Winters is lonely this Christmas. Lonely, despite being overcrowded by friends and family, which he would prefer to label as associates. This is a tale of a lazy procrastinating youth who is no longer young enough to pull that lifestyle off.
Disillusioned with himself as much as the outside world, he draws inspiration from his younger adopted sister, Hannah.

Hannah is a nine-year-old self-proclaiming Jew, which means little more than a recent pork abstinence. She has a wide-eyed passion for life, a bright optimistic light in the shadow of Noel’s pessimism.

The season of joy is full of questions for Noel. Where is life leading me? Do I follow? Are cigarettes really that costly? Am I a drunk? Should I be sober before trying to answer these questions?

Amazon reviewers

"It is not often that a book has the ability to both make me laugh out loud and bring me to the verge of tears; this book had that capability."

"Perfect Christmas gift for those who question the tradition!"

"Parts read like early Nick Hornby while the protagonist with his disconnection and confusion of modern life felt like someone out of Douglas Coupland novel, yet it still felt fresh and new. It moved easily from serious, to funny ,to touching, all in all I highly recommended it."

"I read the book in two days, and found it hard to put down. Absolutely brilliant."

Meet the Author

Andrew Turner; a working class Lancashire born lad who was then raised in North Wales.
Dysplaced, Dysillusioned, dysgraceful and dyslexic. But hey, humour is conceived in anecdotal tragedy.

My first book British Winters is by no means autobiographical, it is more of a Frankenstein's monster of events; things that did happen, things that nearly happened, things that should have happened and things that should not have happened, all stitched together into a linear narrative. But aren't most novels like that.

I am dyslexic (that's not just a clever joke) but my book has been professionally proof read.... unlike this bio.

I am currently working on two other novels and a screenplay of British Winters, so hopefully soon I can add
"Now a Minor Motion Picture" to the book cover.

    I took a chance on this book and was very glad I did. Witty, dark humour weaved into a truly sad tale. I found the book painfully honest and at it's core it a lot of heart, maybe a broken heart but heart nonetheless.
