If you are happy to read about provocative subjects that are explored with sensitivity and daring then Kate Rigby could be just the sort of writer you are looking for. Be prepared to question some of your own established beliefs and to become heavily involved with the lives of many of the characters; even those you dislike. Independent, contemporary prose at its very best.
