Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize, Yvvette Edwards' atmospheric debut novel A Cupboard Full of Coats won sweeping acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic. Fourteen years ago, Jinx's mother was brutally stabbed to death in their East London home. Haunted by this tragedy, Jinx is surprised one day when her mother's friend Lemon appears at her door. Over a tension-filled weekend, the two recount and examine this tragic event, each searching for a path to redemption. "[A] deeply moving, wonderfully written first novel."-Times (London)

Professional reviews

"Those with allergies to facial tissue should be warned that Jinx Jackson's experiences as both a daughter and a mother would wrench tears from statues. Adjoa Andoh delivers spot-on British and Caribbean accents and shoots the listener's blood pressure to dangerous heights with her fast-paced and emotion-driven narration. Jinx's career as a beautician to the deceased doesn't allow her to move beyond her mother's tragic demise. Her burdens similarly degrade her relationship with her young son and his father. Listeners won't soon forget Jinx's dramatic encounter with a visitor from the past who forces her to confront her past, present, and future. J.J.B. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
