Product description

Review

‘Deftly characterised, deeply involving and relevant. A memorable achievement’ The Times

‘It is impossible to put “The Facts of Life” down. A rural English blockbuster. It is beautifully done’ Daily Telegraph

‘Patrick Gale offers us so much more than facts in this extraordinary blockbuster of a novel. Its exploration of family ties and tyranny is encompassed within a deft narrative. Much like the late Ivy Compton-Burnett, Gale presents us with a family saga which both questions and defies present day morality. Always fluent, Gale manages to be both brutal and witty. His analysis of the family tree is rooted in compassion and insight and expounded resoundingly well’ Time Out

‘Gale’s best and most complex novel. Gale is both a shameless romantic and hip enough to get away with it’ New Statesman

Book Description

A mesmerising, epic yet intimate and humane novel of love, music and the life events that stay with us forever
