Format: Paperback
Freud's first full-length collection is a highly-accomplished volume, filled with nuance and charm, and superb control of tone and plot. It's packed with cultured and incisive narratives, which almost become (and indeed could become) short stories, and which navigate a kind of haute bourgeois world of faulty relationships, biographical sketches, collisions and losses, realisations, epiphanies, insights. The works sometimes surf Europe but without becoming travel poems. They're perfect for reading in hotel rooms on the road. They're great company. Despite being a debut it's a mature work, and its maturity stems from its slightly world weary knowledge of people and places. Freud writes at the height of her powers, and I was left wondering where this voice would go to next. There's nothing revolutionary about language or form, what's totally (totally) captivating is the sensibility which is quite unlike anything I've read for years. It's a wonderful book, and I'd urge you to buy it.
