Synopsis

***From the acclaimed author of My Name is Leon***



'Stories of everyday lives that will resonate and move you utterly' Stylist

_______________________________________________



As she walks out of her marriage, a woman remembers the day her husband rescued a boy from drowning.



A blind man on his wedding day celebrates the pursuit of love.



And a young man leaves prison with only one desire - to see his son again.



Kit de Waal's characters light up the page in vivid stories of thwarted desire, love and loss. With power and precision, humanity and insight, Supporting Cast captures the extraordinary moments in our ordinary lives, and the darkness and the joy of the everyday.
