Matilda Voisey is a member of the low-paid precariat, working one part-time job after another following the completion of her MA in Writing and her first novel. When her latest job ends, she finds work sorting mail at the local mail centre, only to battle the bottle, aggro and noisy housemates. In the dead time after Christmas, having worked a succession of eighty-four hour weeks, Matilda loses it completely, succumbing to alcoholism and psychosis.
Kingdom Come is the story of how Matilda recovers her mojo and discovers her strengths as a writer. It is funny and wry and full of hard-won wisdom. It is also the story of how Matilda recovers her faith in God and goes on to find employment and meaning again after a time in the wilderness.
