This review is from: Aftermath: On Marriage and Separation (Hardcover)
I think that Rachel Cusk's publishers have done her no favour in publishing this thin little book. Not because of all the fuss about her invasion of her own family's privacy, because there is far less of that than one would have expected from all the hostile reviews - and far, far less than some prurient readers might have relished! (In any case, she comes over as much less sympathetic and reasonable than her partner.) I thought the writing poor. It's dull and veiled, and so tangled up with chunks of Greek myths that this reader was tempted to skip great chunks. Don't anyone judge her writing by this book.
