Like It Matters by David Cornwell
01 Jun 2016
When Ed meets Charlotte one golden afternoon, the fourteen sleeping pills he’s painstakingly collected don’t matter anymore: this will be the moment he pulls things right, even though he can see Charlotte comes with a story of her own.
They try to make a life in Muizenberg, but old habits die hard, and they become embroiled in a scheme that soon slips out of their control.
In Like It Matters, each line of text, each mark on the page, is meticulously crafted as the novel charts, with striking flair, the life of a man cast adrift.
