What the book is about.

Lunsford, the novel about hope, is set in England in the mid-1970s. It tells the story of Martin Lunsford as he moves through grief. This is mirrored by the attempts being made by a small group of men and women to set up a new Nationalist political party.

The two narratives intersect and illustrate how grief can both bring hope but also can mire the sufferer. Lunsford grieves for his wife and best friend, and for a while yearns for a return to his previous world. That world can never return because, as he discovers, it was never really there in the way his grieving memories have constructed it. He must move on.

The people behind the British Democratic and Freedom Party also long for a return to a world that never was. Their in-fighting and grandiose mediocrity, however, allows for no growth.
