An Irresponsible Age’, Lavinia Greenlaw's extraordinary new novel, is set in London in 1990, with Thatcher still in power but the country unwilling to 'abandon an idea just because it proved to be a bad one'. Lavinia Greenlaw puts before us the monochrome, immemorial middle England of the 1970s in all its dowdy glory, and has us see through the mercurial, bewitching Mary George’s eyes how a seemingly static landscape is suddenly illuminated by the most vivid bursts of energy, colour and drama. Punk’s torch flares into life and singes the fringes of England.

Lavinia Greenlaw's first novel, Mary George of Allnorthover, was published in 2001 to great critical acclaim. Her second, An Irresponsible Age, is obliquely related to its predecessor through the character of Tobias Clough. Tobias found Mary George in the 1970s when she was 17, lying injured in snow in the East Anglian village of Allnorthover, and has protected her ever since. In the new book, they live in early 1990s London with their two-year-old daughter. Almost immediately, Tobias is killed in a terrorist attack. In these hesitant times we follow the life of Juliet Clough and her three siblings, all of them interdependent in a not-quite enviable way, clinging together after the death of a brother and the retreat of their grieving parents.
