People Person

(1 customer review)

£12.99

Dimple Pennington knew of her half siblings, but she didn’t really know them. Five people who don’t have anything in common except for faint memories of being driven through Brixton in their dad’s gold jeep, and some pretty complex abandonment issues. Dimple has bigger things to think about.

She’s thirty, and her life isn’t really going anywhere. An aspiring lifestyle influencer with a terrible and wayward boyfriend, Dimple’s life has shrunk to the size of a phone screen. And despite a small but loyal following, she’s never felt more alone.

That is, until a catastrophic event brings her half siblings Nikisha, Danny, Lizzie and Prynce crashing back into her life. And when they’re all forced to reconnect with Cyril Pennington, the absent father they never really knew, things get even more complicated.

Description

People Person is a triumph. I was so moved by this tender, often humorous, portrait of these five siblings, their burgeoning relationships and all their complexities. I loved every one of these beautifully rendered characters and I’m sure the world will too.

I couldn’t put it down. Caleb Azumah Nelson

    I can imagine it’s a tough gig to follow the roaring success of Queenie…. And I was really pleasantly surprised that People Person is very much it’s own novel and not Queenie 2.
    Cyril Pennington is a barely present father of 5 children, borne to 4 different women. It takes till the children are in their teens and beyond to all meet… and even then it is a brief encounter over an ice-cream. They meet again…. In slightly farcical circumstances years later when one of the middle children, Dimple, has a domestic incident and calls on her siblings for help. Quite why she does this is never really clear ( although a wannabe influencer with no real other friends) but it sets the scene for the rest of the book and enables the sibling relationships to develop.
    Social commentary on modern urban living weaves its way throughout, and some great humour and a strong cast of characters.
