    Alan Warner s The Stars in the Bright Sky is his sixth novel and the sequel to The Sopranos This was my first taste of the author and to be truthful, I am not a fan There are many many great reviews for his earlier work and this one was nominated for the Booker Prize so I had looked forward to reading it.The story is set in Gatwick Airport a group of twenty something women have decided to

    The gallus, hellraising Catholic schoolgirls from The Sopranos have grown up, and are at Gatwick airport ready to book a cheap last minute deal and unleash themselves on some unsuspecting culture Orla has succumbed to Hodgkins lymphoma and her place is taken by Finn s London flatmate Ava, extreme in her beauty and wealth Warner s skill in this novel is extraordinary, the easy thing would have been to keep the girls moving through
