The Quarrel

Jason Thorkwell

Primary school teacher Jason Thorkwell claims he is seen as sullen, arty and difficult, yet in reality is profoundly ordinary, sullen, arty and difficult. In his first book, Jason seeks to ensure his reader becomes privy to a side of modern romance that is rarely explored in full detail. The Quarrel reveals such social issues in stark reality and honesty.

The Quarrel highlights how psychological intimidation and controlling behaviour goes largely unnoticed as a form of domestic abuse. As the protagonist, Alex, is drawn into an affair with a woman facing psychologically abusive behaviour from her husband, the reader is granted a hypothetical glimpse into the experiences of the 1 in 4 women that face such abuse.

Beneath the facts, and the emotional ride this book takes the reader on, The Quarrel is a modern tale of romance; it encompasses all aspects of love, betrayal and hatred, as we see the once-pure Alex turning into the abusive man he feared and despised.
