American Lawn

Jessica Francis Kane

Pat can’t help noticing that the neighbourhood is changing – and now a new couple have moved in next door. Already, they’ve started renovating the house and it looks as though the garden is next. But when Pat spots an advert asking for a plot of land in exchange for vegetables, she begins to realise that she can make a few changes in her own back yard too… Beautifully crafted and sharply observed, American Lawn is an exclusive new story from the author of best-selling novel, The Report
