Description

An innovative family drama told across three timelines that explores the nature of trust, death and what we do to one another in the name of love.
Prodigal is a novel of darkly polished prose, human wit, acute psychological insights, shot throughout with threads of black humour. In tackling the complexities of familial love, Lambert has written a novel reminiscent of Edward St Aubyn or Alan Hollinghurst, and the result is raw, provocative and deeply moving.
