A book 25 years in the making....A story told across two decades....

Described as "beautiful, evocative writing", and "an enchanting tale", Prior Regrets tells the story of Mark Prior and Lauren Tesairi, and their attempts to navigate the hectic streets of Jerusalem; the varied characters who call North London home; and shared memories, faded by time. 

18 years after their last contact - a lonely goodbye in a crumbling hostel - Lauren's unexpected message has resurrected long dormant memories for Mark. At first, he could barely recall their three heady months together - when they were young backpackers, discovering Jerusalem and each other through a haze of Sinai hash, Arabic blues and naive, with youthful ambitions. But then secrets Lauren revealed when they reconnected - secrets hidden for two decades - brings them all back - the dreams, the innocence, and the regrets. 

Now, despite a contented life with a wife and two sons, could Mark recapture that time? And could he change her bleak future?
