Congratulations to author Jude Gorini, whose first novel, The Colourblind Grief, is published today! This is also EIF’s first full-length fiction publication. The book is available from Amazon.com, Waterstones.com and Barnes&Noble.com.
London 2011, the year before the Olympics. The city is buzzing, and Daniel is just starting his journey into self-destruction: living a life of toxic love as his only remaining option. Sex, drugs and rock & roll are his sustenance. His mental health issues warp his life.
10 years later, everything has changed. Was it just a lie created by his family, or by his mind?
This is a journey of death and rebirth, through obsession and healing, towards discovery of the inner self.
A rip-roaring ride of a confessional novel, which takes place within the gay club scene of East London, before moving to Europe and the serene, sandy beaches of La Graciosa. Jude Gorini has written a brave, uncompromising tale which deals with issues of mental health, sexual identity and self-discovery. Difficult to put down, and impossible to forget!
