Ellen lives a shiny life in the heart of a shiny city. She hates her office job, the alcohol isn't making her as drunk as it used to, and she seems to be allergic to the water. But there is always the company of strangers in this city - the stranger, the better. So she's doing fine. Except, savage grief has Ellen in its grip and it's getting tighter. And the anonymous guy she's going home with may not be so anonymous. A hilarious, touching urban fable of connection and redemption, of moving and moving on, This Year's Ashes is from one of our most brutal, insightful and funny writers, Jane Bodie.
