The Book of Our Generation,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: We Had it So Good (Kindle Edition)
I have liked Linda Grant's other writing very much, and this latest novel was not a disappointment. In fact, I wish I hadn't bought it as a Kindle download, because otherwise I'd now be passing it round to my contemporaries, saying 'You must read this! This is about our generation, our lives, our families.' It's not often that a writer manages to create a real sense of lives lived, gradual changes, families growing, disappointments and sadnesses, and the surprise of looking back after 30 years of marriage and wondering how such young idiots could have made the right decision for such silly reasons.
