A Guardian and Observer Fiction Highlight for 2022 and a Bookseller Editor's Choice - the new novel from the Winner of the BBC National Short Story Award 2021
Two sisters, four nights, one city.
April, 1941. Belfast has escaped the worst of the war - so far. Over the next two months, it's going to be destroyed from above, so that people will say, in horror, My God, Belfast is finished.
Many won't make it through, and no one who does will remain unchanged.
Following the lives of sisters Emma and Audrey - one engaged to be married, the other in a secret relationship with another woman - as they try to survive the horrors of the four nights of bombing which were the Belfast Blitz, These Days is a timeless and heart-breaking novel about living under duress, about family, and about how we try to stay true to ourselves.
