A Stormful of Pickles: When Nature and Desire Collide by Elliott Fassbinder @ElliottFassbin1

A quirkily dark comedic novel about loss, search for spiritual meaning and about how decisions taken in a split-second often come back to slap us in the face. It’s a tale about the absurdity of the human condition, specifically our heroine, Fran’s, absurd human condition. Bless her, she tries her best.

It’s a week before Christmas, and the worst storm in twenty years is about to descend upon Maidstone.

Fran, youthful dinner lady and regular churchgoer, feels a storm building inside her, too. To escape her overbearing father, she has foolishly married Mr Edward Dobbs, a dull and pious fellow, not a bit like the manly heroes of her beloved erotic historical novels. And now she’s trapped behind walls of her own making. She has accepted her life of grey domesticity with stoicism, the only buffer to the monotony of her existence being her weekly visits to a lavish hotel tearoom, where she can indulge her modest fantasies.

But this is all about to change. Fran is about to embark on a roller-coaster of sexual frustration, desire and fulfilment. Not necessarily in that order. And she’s going to take the men in her life along with her.

As the storm hits, Fran huddles under a tree, waiting for a bus that doesn’t come. Enter not so Good Samaritan Peter Pearson, head of the school English department, with his warm dry car and his seductive Irish charm. While her dark-horse husband cavorts with a forbidden colleague on the other side of town, can Fran repel the charms of this broken teacher and chart a course back to the tranquil waters of her boring life? Does she even want to?

This storm is about to throw all their lives up in the air. And where they will land is anybody’s guess.
