Book:The Drosten's curse:2016
Author: Kennedy, A L
Year: 2016
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: BBC Books
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: 2015 Something distinctly odd is going on in Arbroath. It could be to do with golfers being dragged down into the bunkers at the Fetch Brothers' Golf Spa Hotel, never to be seen again. It might be related to the strange twin grandchildren of the equally strange Mrs Fetch - owner of the hotel and fascinated with octopuses. It could be the fact that people in the surrounding area suddenly know what others are thinking, without anyone saying a word. Whatever it is, the Doctor is most at home when faced with the distinctly odd. With the help of Fetch Brothers' junior receptionist Bryony, he'll get to the bottom of things.

Book:All the rage:2015
Author: Kennedy, A. L.
Year: 2015
Language: English
Type: Book
Content type: Short story
Publisher: Vintage Books
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: London: Jonathan Cape, 2014 Here, as before, lies the battlefield of the heart, where characters who have suffered disaffection, alienation or emotional damage somehow emerge - haltingly, awkwardly - into the astonishment of intimacy. And here, too, are the ones who will not shake off the hurt and the loss, who will not come through. The title story takes place on a railway platform, with a couple waiting for a train that never comes, and opens out into the husband's shocking admission of years of deceit, and a devastating portrait of a failed marriage, a failed man.

Book:The little snake:2018
Author: Kennedy, A L
Year: 2018
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Canongate
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: This is the story of Mary, a young girl born in a beautiful city full of rose gardens and fluttering kites. When she is still very small, Mary meets Lanmo, a shining golden snake, who becomes her very best friend. The snake visits Mary many times, he sees her city change, become sadder as bombs drop and war creeps in. He sees Mary and her family leave their home, he sees her grow up and he sees her fall in love. But Lanmo knows that the day will come when he can no longer visit Mary, when his destiny will break them apart, and he wonders whether having a friend can possibly be worth the pain of knowing you will lose them.

Book:On writing:2014
Author: Kennedy, A L
Year: 2014
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Vintage Books
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: London: Jonathan Cape, 2013 At the core of 'On Writing' is the hugely popular blog that A.L. Kennedy writes for the Guardian and we follow her during a 3-year period when she finished one collection of stories and started another, and wrote a novel in between. Readers and aspiring writers will have almost everything they need to know about the complexities of researching, writing and publishing fiction, but they will be receiving this wisdom conversationally, from one of the funniest and most alert of our contemporary authors.
