Waking hours A N P Emmanuel book cover

My debut novel, Waking hours, is now available. You can read extracts here.

Spanning over fifty years, from 1950s Ceylon to twenty-first century England, it follows three generations of one family. When Carl Jansen walks out on his family after an affair, his mother-in-law, Flora Ratnam, is determined to protect them from further hurt. In doing so, she finds herself caught in a scheme of deception that has consequences for them all.

Waking hours was longlisted for the SI Leeds Literary Prize.
