Lost loves and painful truths against the backdrop of Liverpool’s fall and rise

Our latest debut in this, our 25th anniversary year, is James Corbett’s The Outsiders, a ‘gripping and ambitious novel’ (Sean Harris, Mail on Sunday) set against the backdrop of Liverpool's fall and rise.

Opening amid the Toxteth riots in 1981, it weaves the past 40 years of Liverpool’s history into a compelling love story and mystery.

As the city burns, ambitious young Paul Davis meets two people who will change his life: Nadezhda, an elusive poet who has fallen out of fashion; and her daughter Sarah, with whom he shares an instant connection.

The novel moves from Merseyside in the Thatcher era, via Nadezhda’s clandestine background in war-torn Europe, to the present day, taking in the local and global events that shape all three characters.

Sean Styles of Radio Merseyside says: ‘It’s fabulous. A great read and a great story, by one of our own.’ And Buzz Magazine’s Rhianon Holley wrote: ‘This has leapt into my list of favourite reads and I honestly envy those who will be starting their journey with The Outsiders.’
