    In BOLT FROM THE BLUE, Jeremy Cooper, the winner of the 2018 Fitzcarraldo Editions Novel Prize, charts the relationship
    between a mother and daughter over the course of thirty-odd years. In October 1985, Lynn moves down to London
    to enroll at Saint Martin's School of Art, leaving her mother behind in a suburb of Birmingham. Their relationship is
    complicated, and their only form of contact is through the letters, postcards and emails they send each other periodically,
    while Lynn slowly makes her mark on the London art scene. A novel in epistolary form, BOLT FROM THE BLUE captures the
    waxing and waning of the mother-daugher relationship over time, achieving a rare depth of feeling with a deceptively
    simple literary form.
