Ghost Town

1981. Coventry, city of Two Tone and Ska, is riven with battles between skinheads and young Asians. Photographer Baz—‘too Paki to be white, too gora to be desi’—is capturing the conflict on film. Unemployed graduate Maia—serial champion of liberal causes—is pregnant with a mixed-race child. Neither can afford to let the racists win. They must take a stand. A stand that will cost lives. More

About Catriona Troth

Catriona Troth was born in Scotland and grew up in Canada before coming back to the UK. She has now lived in the Chilterns longer than she has ever lived in anywhere, a fact that still comes as a surprise.

After more than twenty years spent writing technical reports at work and fiction on the commuter train, Catriona made the shift into freelance writing. She now writes a regular column for Words with Jam literary magazine, researches and writes articles for Quakers in the World and tweets as @L1bCat. She is very proud to be the latest member of the Triskele Books author collective.

Her writing explores themes of identity and childhood memory.

Her novella, Gift of the Raven, is set against a backcloth of Canada from the suburbs of Montreal to the forests of the Haida Gwaii.

Her novel, Ghost Town, is set in Coventry in 1981, when the city of Two Tone and Ska was riven with battles between skinheads and young Asians.
