About the book
In the 1960s Tristan’s grandparents are hard-working people with their own grocery shop. Their four children help in the shop but suffer as a result of their father’s violent behaviour. Their mother increasingly turns in on herself, leading the children to take things into their own hands and eventually ban their father from the house. Years later, when Arthur and his brother Frank want to sell their parents’ business to start their own bicycle shop, their father comes firmly back onto the scene and they are forced to confront their past.
