AUTHOR: N R Phillips
The Saffron Eaters
The Saffron Eaters
  • Description

Ever since the day when, as schoolboys, they wreaked havoc on Quizzy Maggie's brand-new hat, Steve, Tim, John Ashton, Uncle Joe and Shimshai have been loyal companions. But times move on, and while hearts and souls are rooted in the Cornish fishing village where they all grew up, the bonds of friendship are challenged.

It is the arrival of Cleo, a strikingly blonde and blue-eyed artist, that causes a flutter of envy and threatens to unravel the knots of weary and age-old marriages. When she and Steve plunge into an absorbing and passionate love affair, the chains of tradition draw closer and the links of a uniquely intertwined community refuse to slip.

N. R. Phillips was born in St Ives, Cornwall, and has lived in the west of the county for most of his life. The Saffron Eaters, was winner of the TSB Peninsula Prize in 1987, selected by Fay Weldon and John Fowles as being the finest new novel by a westcountry writer.
