SHORTLISTED FOR THE ORANGE PRIZE FOR FICTION 2002 – a stunning debut novel about a little girl growing up in the Ardoyne area of Belfast.


02 Jul 2019


Tragic, hilarious, moving, shocking, evocative, compulsive. No Bones follows Amelia Lovett as she grows up in Belfast during The Troubles and eventually moves to London. Felt like a raw, frank account of life in Belfast at the time and the impact on those living through it.
