'Unforgettable and stirring...An important debut' Alice Ash, author of Paradise Block
Happy publication day @joebedford_uk ! I was lucky enough to read a review copy and was blown away by this high octane ride through 2010s political activism. Personal loyalties and idealism reach boiling point under a sweltering Brighton sun. @parthianbooks pic.twitter.com/61zw4PzAbE— Chris Parker (@chris_d_parker) June 1, 2023
'A beautifully observed portrayal of the spirit of Brighton' Allie Rogers, author of Little Gold
'Highly compelling... a fascinating exploration of political hope, friendship, difficulty, infatuation, and unrequited desire' Naoimi Booth, author of Exit Management
At once a letter of support to everyone disillusioned by British politics, and a deeply perceptive snapshot of modern relationships, A Bad Decade for Good People is a captivating state-of-the-nation tale that begs the question: when it feels like the world is falling apart, how do you keep those you love from doing the same?
