Watkins & Co.
Will Watkins has just left university to start on life’s adventure, when he is called back from his first teaching job in Africa. His father’s death creates turmoil in the Watkins family – and in Will’s inner life, as he struggles to come to terms with a series of discoveries about his loved ones and himself.
Watkins & Co. has echoes of Salinger’s angst-ridden The Catcher In the Rye, suffused with the reticent suffering of Ishiguro’s The Remains Of The Day. It is an outstanding debut novel.
