One More Stop

One More Stop

Twenty years after her mother's death, Loli Greene is hired by an almost bankrupt theatre company to travel across the US to teach tired, toxic teenagers to tap into their creative unconscious, so that they might better understand their world at large and the world of their ancestors. During her challenging travels, Loli taps into her world at large only to uncover secrets about her past that change her imperfect present into what might become her most perfect future. While teaching in a town in the Midwest, she meets a mother and a daughter whose lives she transforms, and whose love transforms her. A raunchy, always entertaining book, Loli finally figures out how to navigate her untidy life.

'Introduces you to a friend you do not want to lose. By turns hilarious, aggressive and touching, Loli Green drags us in her wake as she crosses the US on a journey of self-discovery for her and for us. A terrific first novel' Maria Aitken

'A perfect example of pithy, poignant, punchy 21st century fiction' Rose Collis

'Reminds you how to live again. How to make love, how to feel pain and joy and be a woman. Amazing' Miriam Margolyes

'A stunning piece of literary fiction' DIVA

'Funny and fierce and passionate. A terrific first novel' Rebecca Gilman
