Keep Walking Rhona Beech

Keep Walking Rhona Beech

‘Incredibly insightful, funny and poignant’ Helen Sedgwick

I get up. I go to work. I spend the whole day waiting for the words on my screen to make sense. In the commuter broth of the carriage home, tears run in hot lines to my jaw and for a minute or so, I let them.

Nothing has turned out quite how Rhona Beech thought: her partner of nine years moved to another country, and she keeps applying for a new job every six months or so. And her lukewarm efforts to adjust to the changes in her life are thrown entirely up in the air when she gets some unwanted news.

Rhona’s sardonic, funny, poignant attempts to find an answer to the questions she’s facing are helped by Hilary (her oldest friend), Tania, Erin and Lizzie. Keep Walking, Rhona Beech is a brilliantly observant satire on relationships, friendship and life.

Previously published as Head for the Edge, Keep Walking by Cargo Publishing.

A warm and ferociously witty story of the s*** life throws at us and how we survive it. Truth rings from every page of this assured and engrossing debut
Zoe Strachan
Rhona Beech- sharp-eyed, laconic-tongued, tender-hearted - is your eccentric new best friend. She makes a terrific debut in this witty, chatty, lyrical novel
Kevin MacNeil
Kate Tough's dry wit and keen observations make this eye-catching debut about a defining moment in the life of thirty-something Rhona Beech both laugh-out-loud funny as well as poignant
Lesley Macdowell
One of my favourite novels of recent years. Incredibly insightful, funny and poignant
Helen Sedgwick, author of The Comet Seekers and The Growing Season
Tough is a unique writer and not easily pigeonholed. Her work has a distinct, curious tone which elevates the stuff of everyday life (love, relationships, sex) and makes it very interesting
Laura Waddell, writer, reviewer & publisher
Tough has a brilliant way with everyday realism
Mary Paulson-Ellis, author of The Other Mrs Walker
