Saving Grace

Grace Wilson

'The funniest and most perspicacious memoir I’ve read this year… A brilliant commentary on the housing crisis…. It’s hilarious, not only about rapacious landlords and their creepy ways, but about friendship, work, holidays and sex, too.'
Rachel Cooke, Observer

An Observer Book of the Year

Saving Grace is the story of four twenty-somethings – Grace, Vicky, Jess and Maxine – who live in a ramshackle house in a rapidly gentrifying East London…until the landlord announces he’s selling up and they’ve got four weeks to leave. New plans form effortlessly for the others, but the odds feel stacked against Grace as she struggles to find self-fulfilment, a half decent job or even a roof over her head.
