Keeping the House

The Turkish variety are prized for their enlarged leaf bud, that’s where we put the heroin . . .

Ayla has a plan. There’s a stash of heroin, just waiting to be imported. No one seems sure what to do with it, but Ayla’s a gardener, and she knows.

From secretive men’s clubs to spotless living rooms, Keeping the House is an electrifying debut that lifts the lid on a covert world. But just as it offers a fresh take on the London drug trade and its machinery, it tells the story of three women in one house: a grandmother, a mother, and the daughter, each dealing with the intricacies and reverberations of community, migration and love.
