by Louise Tondeur

Grandma’s stories, ‘…would always start in the place where we were,’ and so it is with Unusual Places. Human remains are concealed in the Greenwich Tunnel in a world where London is a prison; a market is the setting for sexual and sensual awakenings; a professional picnicker finds love. Louise Tondeur’s stories skip along, rich with detail and musical prose, only to trip us up with turns and surprises: the unusual lurks in the most ordinary of places.

Louise has been a writer and a teacher in various guises for the last twenty-five years. She lives in East Sussex and is currently working on her first crime novel.

These are the stories you might feel surging around you as you walk down a crowded city street, every one its own world of tenderness, violence, absurdity and joy.

Joanne Limburg, author of Small Pieces, A Want of Kindness and The Woman Who Thought Too Much

Tondeur’s eye for detail is so precise, you might fear being in her presence, lest she see your secrets, too. What a tender, dark, nuanced book: a quiet storm.

Leone Ross, author of Come Let Us Sing Anyway, All the Blood is Red and Orange Laughter

About The Haven Home for Delinquent Girls:

Tondeur’s brand of homespun gothic and seaside camp is a memorable one … tender and eccentric.

The Independent

She manages an intriguing blend of nostalgia and knowingness, reminiscent of Todd Haynes’s film, Far From Heaven.
