Who attacked Dad?
When a corrupt, brutal dentist, Albert Ludd, is found
battered and bloody after failing to attend a memorial party
for his youngest son, suspicion falls on the dentist‚Äôs other
children. Especially on Dad‚Äôs middle daughter, 37-year-old
buxom bruiser Monica Ludd, who was heard ‚Äėuttering threats‚Äô
against her absent father. How come her car is found outside
Dad‚Äôs house? Why did she buy a large axe? And yet, Monica‚Äôs
a deputy head teacher‚Ä¶
Blood is a Gothic black comedy seen through the eyes of
six-foot Monica, who cannot help speaking her secret
thoughts aloud and who has been banned by the principal of
her school, from using social media. ‚Äė‚ÄúParents are sensitive
to abuse.‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúNeil, I would never abuse our parents.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúGovernors queried ‚Äėmoron‚Äô and ‚Äėtwat‚Äô.‚ÄĚ ‚Äô
Set in an angry, anarchic, Brexit-ing Britain where
terrorism has become routine, Blood also asks serious
questions about modern life: what can we do with the brutal
men who bully women and the weak? Can we wait for a world of
order and justice? If we hit back, can the circle of
violence ever be broken?
