An ingenious, funny and moving novel about love, loss and second chances - and the
power of music to bring us together. By the award-winning author of The Offing and
The Gallows Pole

Dinah has always lived in Scarborough. Trapped with her feckless husband and
useless son, her one release comes at her town’s Northern Soul nights, where she
gets to put on her best and lose herself in the classics. Dinah has an especial hero: Bucky Bronco, who recorded a string of soul gems in the
late Sixties and then vanished off the face of the earth. When she manages to contact
Bucky she can’t believe her luck.
Over in Chicago, Bucky Bronco is down on his luck – and has been since the loss of his
beloved wife Maybelle. The best he can hope for is to make ends meet, and try and stay
But then an unexpected invitation arrives, from someone he’s never met, to come to
somewhere he’s never heard of. With nothing to lose – and in need of the cash – Bucky
boards a plane.
And so Bucky finds himself in rainy Scarborough, where everyone seems to know who
is – preparing to play for an audience for the first time in nearly half a century. Over the
course of the week, he finds himself striking up new and unexpected friendships; and
facing his past, and its losses, for the very first time.

Wise, hilarious and profound, Rare Singles is an unforgettable story about the power
of music and friendship to bring us back to ourselves.
