Join The–Dots

Red Ink

A novel...

When 15-year-old Melon Fouraki’s mother is knocked down and killed by a London bus, she is left with no family worth mentioning. Her mother, Maria, never did introduce Melon to a “living, breathing” father.

The indomitable Auntie Aphrodite, meanwhile, is hundreds of miles away on a farm in Crete, and is unlikely to be jumping on a plane and coming to East Finchley anytime soon.

But at least Melon has ‘The Story’. ‘The Story’ is the Fourakis family fairytale. A story is something.

Red Ink is a blackly comic coming-of-age tale about superstition, denial and family myth.
