by Jonathan Tulloch (Author). When Audrey and Ronny win the National Lottery their troubles seem to be over.

by Jonathan Tulloch (Author). Long outstanding bills can be mett, the loan shark paid off, and their cleaning and cowboy-builder jobs gleefully ditched. But for Audrey, matriarch of the Gateshead tower blocks, and Ronny the flamboyant dreamer, the winning ticket brings with it many unforseen changes. There are lotteries of a different whose prizes, some lesser, some far greater, must be won or heatbreakingly lost.

Tulloch's two previous books (The Season Ticket and The Bonny Lad) were extremely good pieces of fiction set in the Gatehead district of Newcastle, and this book continues his chronicling of that ghetto, with several characters reappearing. The central characters are Audrey (a 50ish grandmother and cleaning lady at a local mall), and her husband Ronny (a mild-mannered dreamer and cowboy builder).

Tulloch’s morality tale then takes a rather obvious course. Tulloch is good at evoking the Gateshead environment

Tulloch’s morality tale then takes a rather obvious course. The family quarrels, the begging letters and the inability to match desire with imagination don’t have the intended ironic force. As Ronny recognises the approach of death and Audrey remembers her suicide attempt and her lost father, the mood darkens without really stirring our hearts. Tulloch is good at evoking the Gateshead environment. He summons up loan sharks and their nasty enforcers, heroin addicts and their starveling children, as well as honourable people trying to lead honourable lives
