No Alibis Press to Reissue Glenn Patterson's Number 5

Glenn Patterson

No Alibis Press is delighted to announce the reissue of Number 5 by Glenn Patterson.

Number 5 is a three-bedroom terrace house in a suburban Belfast street. From the ’50s to the present day, successive occupants fill the house with their troubles and joys, simply trying to cope with all that life hurls their way whilst outside the front door the city shivers and sweats with the passing seasons. As fashions and tastes change according to each generation moving into Number 5, so the social fault lines of the city shift. Yet the presence of those who have come before is an ever-present memory...

Originally published in 2003 by Hamish Hamilton and Penguin Books in 2004, No Alibis Press have reissued this amazing novel to coincide with the BBC Radio Ulster Storytellers adaptation.
