Salley Vickers – Cousins

Sunday 30th April, 3:00pm - 4:00pm

Theatre, Queen’s Hall

Cousins is a remarkable book about the strange tact and terrors of family life and the histories that haunt it.

Set in the evocative countryside of Northumberland, near Holy Island, Cambridge and the West Country, as ever in Salley Vickers’ novels, landscape in Cousins is an informing and significant presence.

Will Tye and his cousin Cele are kindred spirits who have grown up together. But their very closeness keeps them at a troubled distance until the night that Will recklessly embarks on a misadventure with devastating consequences. It’s a tragedy that engulfs three generations of the Tye family, laying bare dangerous secrets that stretch as far back as the Second World War. It also opens up new wounds, leaving the Tye family with agonising questions about retribution for the days, months and years to come.
