Overview
-

After a bitter family feud because she is gay, photographer Jo is cut off from her niece and nephew. It is this loss that influences her photography from that point forward. She runs off to London, where she bumps into Leigh, a singer. Leigh encourages Jo to exhibit her photography in a London gallery. She becomes close to the two-year-old son of the gallery owner, and that only opens up old wounds. Leigh has her own demons to fight, but a romance nevertheless develops between the two, even though they both know Leigh’s relationships rarely lasts longer than three months. Can the love between them survive? Their courtship forms the core of this novel.

REVIEWS
-

"Warrington manages to photograph that which is not there. The empty spaces ask the viewer to see what the camera cannot. In October Warrington does the same with text."

- Izak de Vries

"It is moving, unique and brutally honest."

- Rooi Rose Magazine

"Read this book if the mystery of human relationships interests you or if you just want to read a book that makes you feel good."

- Vilien-Miri Coetzee, Huisgenoot Magazine

"A novel that successfully gives a voice to the different stages of love that connect two people...and simultaneously is an accusation against the kind of prejudices that one might hope have died long ago."

- Thys Human, Rapport Newspaper
