OUR LATEST FICTION TITLE
NOW THEY KNEW
BY SANDEN GREVELLE
THE SEQUEL TO THEY COULDN’T HAVE KNOWN
The development of a civilian airport under the guise of military requirements during World War Two destroys a village near London, with cataclysmic effects on the lives of the villagers and their timeless country ways. Post-war immigration into the area – especially from the Caribbean – produces an unprecedented social milieu, in which Allen, a social outcast through a congenital disfigurement, finds unlikely friendship among those facing racial and cultural prejudice.
Having been unwittingly involved in an explosion in which a man died, Allen takes the chance to accompany three newfound friends from the Caribbean, who are disillusioned with the ‘mother country’, back to their island.
An innocent abroad, he inadvertently challenges the entire spectrum of local racial prejudice. He creates havoc wherever he goes, culminating in his bizarre and unofficial deportation back to Britain. Feeling like outsiders themselves, Allen’s three friends also return to Britain. Staying true to their strange friend, they seek him out and help him through further entanglements, providing Allen with hope for the future.
Now they knew.
