In The Secret Places Of The Stairs

Giulio Einaudi Editore (Italy) |

My debut novel is coming out with Giulio Einaudi Editore (Italy). It explores a forbidden love affair between two men who met at University in Scotland in the 1980’s. They have one glorious month on a Greek island together before Peter leaves for divinity college and Malcolm goes home to Cornwall to start his career as a church organist and organ restorer. The two men see each other only once: a night in an Edinburgh hotel the week before Peter marries Clare. Thirty years later, Clare sends Malcolm a letter inviting him to spend the month of June restoring the church organ in their remote Scottish village. Malcolm gets on the train north, with no idea about the world he is heading into.
