Tell Me an Ending

By Jo Harkin



'Pure pleasure' THE TIMES ' Incredibly nicely written . . . [Jo Harkin] writes really well about human beings. I really enjoyed it' MARIAN KEYES 'Sharply, beautifully written' THE NEW YORK TIMES 'As page-turning as a thriller, and as thought-provoking as an inquiry into the human mind should be' i PAPER 'Intriguing, frightening, witty and humane' WALL STREET JOURNAL 'Riveting and thought-provoking' KAREN THOMPSON WALKER 'Whip-smart and thoughtful with a dark vein of humour. Compulsively readable. I loved it - CHRISTINA SWEENEY-BAIRD 'I literally couldn't put it down' CARYS BRAY ---------- What if you could erase your most painful memory? Would you still, be you? Across the world, thousands of people are shocked to receive an email telling them that they once chose to have a traumatic memory removed. Now they are being given the chance to get that memory back. For Mei, William, Oscar and Finn there is a piece missing, but they're not sure what. And each of them must decide if the truth is worth the pain, or better left unknown. For Noor, who works at the memory clinic Nepenthe, the process of reinstating their patients' memories begins to shake the moral foundations of her world. As she delves deeper into the programme, she will have to risk everything to uncover the true human cost of this miraculous technology. An exploration of secrets, grief, identity and belonging - of the stories we tell ourselves, and come to rely on, Tell Me An Ending is a sharp, dark and devastating novel about the power and danger of memory. ---------- 'A compelling cautionary intelligent ensemble piece that raises fascinating questions about how we use memory both to create and dismantle ourselves, and the ultimate mystery of who, or possibly what, "myself" actually is' GUARDIAN 'Extraordinary...gripping, inventive, and a memory I'll never forget' EMMA STONEX 'A triumph of a novel . . . I loved it' EMYLIA HALL 'Original, compelling, and utterly captivating' LUCY CLARKE 'A smart, thought-provoking page-turner. I loved it' MARCEL THEROUX 'Suspenseful, richly imagined, and brimming with compassion... I finished the last page desperate to discuss this brilliant novel with everyone I know' JESSAMINE CHAN 'Thought-provoking and utterly compulsive' TAHMIMA ANAM 'Original, morally complex, heartbreakingly human' TAMMY COHEN 'It will stay with me for a long time' JESSICA BARRY 'A compelling page-turner rendered in exquisite prose' SHELLEY HARRIS
