Just Another Week In Suburbia by Les Zig

Every day is the same in suburbia. Until, of course, it’s not. When Casper Gray discover his wife is keeping secrets from him, his world starts to unravel, and so does his mind. Just Another Week In Suburbia, Les Zig’s debut novel, (he’s also written a memoir, Overload, had screenplays optioned and is a prolific short story writer) is a perceptive and accurate portrayal of relationships and routine, insecurity and infidelity, life and love. Casper finds himself in a rut – nothing’s wrong with his life with Jane and his job as a teacher, but like us all, things could be better. Life and its participants are flawed after all. Taking place over just one week the easy prose and observant dialogue reflect the mundane, whilst the plot twists and the subsequent tangles that Casper finds himself in remind us that anything can happen. Characters are believable and likeable, even with their flaws, and the description of chores, work, exercise, hobbies, evenings on the sofa and nights in the pub very relatable. It’s not a groundbreaking novel, but then suburbia isn’t a groundbreaking topic. It’s every day life, and all the more powerful for it. Available now on Pantera Press.
