Product description

Review

"Poetic and perceptive, Feaver has delivered a raw account of martial disintegration and its bruising after effects" (Guardian)

"Jane Feaver's debut novel is an emotionally accurate portrayal... She has nailed the relationships between the children precisely and with humour" (Lisa Gee Independent)

"This is a first novel of extraordinary intelligence and charm ... It's a bleak enough narrative, but also extremely funny" (The Times)

"An intimate portrait of a bohemian family in the sticks - great stuff" (Blake Morrison Guardian)

"This is a memorable debut - and a confident book...There are no easy laughs, no sentimentality. Feaver is witty and inventive. Above all, she is sufficiently daring to allow truth and memory freedom to shape scenes that convince. The choreography is seamless, each character lives off the page and the narrative is an inevitable as it is unpredictable" (Eileen Battersby Irish Times)

Book Description

'A wonderful debut novel, both moving and entertaining, which unflinchingly examines the tensions of intimate family life' - Carol Ann Duffy.
