    In this darkly funny and emotive debut, Ben Jewell has hit a breaking point. His profoundly autistic 10-year-old son, Jonah, has never spoken, and Ben and his wife, Emma, are struggling to cope. When Ben and Emma fake a separation - a strategic yet ill-advised decision to further Jonah's case in an upcoming tribunal to determine the future of his education - father and son are forced to move in with Georg, Ben's elderly and cantankerous father. In a small house in North London, three generations of men - one who can't talk, two who won't - are thrown together.

    November 18th, 1987. Abigail, a mother of two, is making her way home to North London from a day's work at Selfridges. At King's Cross, she gets caught up in a horrendous fire that kills 31 and injures 100. She escapes physically unscathed but disorientated, and, desperate to get home to her children - nine-year-old Robert and six-month-old Samantha - she slips away from the rescue staff and begins an odyssey that instead takes her farther from home.
