The Lottery | [Jonathan Tulloch]

The Lottery

When Audrey and Ronny win the National Lottery, their troubles seem to be over. Bills can be met, the loan sharks paid off, and their cleaning and cowboy-builder jobs gleefully ditched off. But for Audrey, the matriarch of the Gateshead tower blocks and Ronny, the flamboyant dreamer, the winning ticket brings with it many other unforeseen changes.

What the Critics Say

"Tulloch is skilful in his delineation of exhausted people living on nothing but hope." (Ali Smith, Times Literary Supplement)
"Like an English Roddy Doyle, Tulloch's dialect and characterisation of a community down but not out is at once hilarious and heartbreaking...Tulloch's Gateshead may become as memorable as Doyle's Dublin." (GQ)

    "Good in parts but hard to understand!"

    I had a bit of a love/hate relationship with this book. There were some parts that really grabbed my interest and then it tended to dip in other parts of the book. This was partly due to the narration. Whilst I understand the need for authenticity of the book and the fact the characters are set in Tyneside, the accents used in the book were really strong and I found it hard at times to understand what was being read. Another gripe was the chaptering in the book was a bit bizarre and somewhat difficult to follow. That said, I did wade through it but I have to say that I didn't love it.
