Bad Bread, Good Blues

Bad Bread, Good Blues is my debut novel, available now on Amazon and Google Play – Artwork by Gary Ogden (@gogdenart)


Faced with an uncertain future, a young Londoner becomes obsessed with a previous life in Prague and what he left of himself there. A searing, honest reflection on the moments that define us, Bad Bread, Good Blues is a novel about heartbreak and hope, life in a foreign land, tragically unsuccessful weekend breaks and nearly disastrous writing trips. It is about baking to stave off the blues, seeking solace in travel, and enjoying the unique characters we encounter along the way. Written with frank honesty, Bad Bread, Good Blues explores love, life's micro-dramas, the trials we each face in our day-to-day lives, and how a nation's culture can be measured in the quality of its bread.
