This review is from: The Secret Intensity of Everyday Life (Kindle Edition)
Because William Nicholson has limited the scope of this novel, with the action taking place over just a few days and with a small cast of characters, he has created the opportunity to make these people fully-fledged human beings with pasts, presents and,we hope, futures. We care about them, we understand them, we identify with them, we recognise them. He is an astonishingly perceptive writer and I look forward to reading his other work.
