Product description

Review

"I read Forgetting Zoë with great pleasure, admiration, and envy. What a writer. The characters are so sharply drawn they're etched into the page. It's admirable the way that Ray describes with equal intensity two such different landscapes. He's using language like thick oil paint; you read and are inside the world being described. Captivating. A great storytelling achievement." (Tim Pears)

"A convincing portrait of how childhood brutality is passed down the generations...Direct in its depiction of abuse, Forgetting Zoë is never less than psychologically acute." (Financial Times)

"Stockholm syndrome is a curious but understandable condition, intelligently and vividly explored by Ray Robinson...It is a measure of Ray Robinson's own sympathetic imagination that he makes Thurman credible as a human being and not merely a monster...He shows with great skill how Zoë becomes emotionally dependent on him...The action moves between Arizona and the Canadian island, and the atmosphere of both places is very well conveyed...Ray Robinson is a writer with keen observation. His prose is hard, abrupt and sinewy. He abstains from judgment, content to present his characters in action, though also ready to enter into their minds. The novel is a study of obsession, but also of the inadequacy of obsession...It's a novel that starts as an ugly and nasty story but ends up by being moving and even tender. This is partly because Robinson shows us goodness co-existing with evil and outfacing it...It is a novel that contains violence but also stillness, that reveals more than it makes explicit...A mature and accomplished work." (Allan Massie The Scotsman)

"Well executed." (The Times)

"Very provocative...Powerfully done." (Tom Sutcliffe Saturday Review, Radio 4)

Book Description
