Available now – The Red Beach Hut
Lynn Michell’s 3rd novel, The Red Beach Hut, was published on October 4th, 2017 by IQ Press.
The Red Beach Hut is about a fleeting, poignant relationship between a gay man on the run and a lonely boy. The backcloth is a tired English sea-side town, winding down for the winter. The time is the week before the 2015 general election when reports of child abuse, pedophilia and immigrants dominate the news and the tabloids deliver soundbites of hatred. For two unconventional, troubled people, the beach hut is a brief haven and refuge away from social persecution
A contemporary Whistle Down The Wind, this is the story of a man and a boy who find a quiet joy in each another’s company. But the past, running at their heels, closes in on them as the narrative builds to its inevitable, tense and chilling climax.
