The House Hunter

By Henry Sutton

At forty-two, Eleanor Mitchell has been married to an unexciting man for eleven years and lived in the same South-East London house for fifteen, has no children and has just lost her job.

Something has to change – so she elects to move house. Yet on her odyssey around London, Eleanor finds she’s more interested in the occupants than their homes, imagining their situations and relationships, putting herself in their shoes.

Then she begins to notice odd connections between them. Or is she imagining these too?

In his third novel, Henry Sutton explores the dramas and tragedies that lie hidden beneath the patina of everyday life.

Henry Sutton was born in 1963 in Hopton, a small town on the Norfolk and Suffolk border. He began a career in journalism with the Norwich Mercury and now regularly contributes travel articles to The Times, Condé Nast Traveller and Elle. He has published two previous novels, Gorlestonand Bank Holiday Monday, and lives in London with his wife, the painter Jane Langley, and their young daughter.
