Felix Pink is a boring old man. He’s had a boring life and is waiting to die what he hopes will be a boring death. While he does, he volunteers as an Exiteer – someone who sits with terminally ill people as they commit suicide, lending moral support and removing the evidence so that family and friends are not implicated in the death.
But one day Felix makes a terrible mistake that will change what’s left of his life for ever.
He kills the wrong man…
Life stops being boring. Life becomes very surprising and complicated indeed.
This is a coming-of-old-age story of love, loss and hope for the future – however short it is. Man Booker long listed Belinda Bauer continues to redefine the boundaries of crime fiction, writing with extraordinary compassion, dark humour and originality. WE WERE NEVER HERE is Belinda’s 9th novel, and will delight fans of Kate Atkinson.
