Powerful debut novel examining the inadequacies
of Britain’s mental health system
Jacob Spalding is a young man caught between a troubled past and an empty future. As he struggles to make sense of his sister’s death, Jacob becomes
intimately acquainted with the cul-de-sacs of Britain’s mental health system in the 1990s. Yet the story is ultimately one of resilience, endurance and even hope. Deeply moving, yet punctuated by moments of pure comedy, Tell Me When My Light Turns Green is the outstanding debut novel by Mark Saxton.
Mark Saxton lives in London.
