Product description


"'If London never writes another word, The Good Parents is more than enough... Achingly good.' Cath Kenneally, Australian 'Wise, true, funny, tragic... The quality of observation, close-focus and long-range, is so sharp you'll jab Post-it notes on every page. Every character, completely understood from the inside, is matchlessly right and irreplaceable.' Cath Kenneally, Australian 'Underwritten by a wealth of human understanding... the results are as powerful as they are unsettling.' Michael McGirr, Sydney Morning Herald 'London's dark and lovely work is both a novel of ideas and one of emotions... the mystery of enthrallment only deepens, irradiated by London's gorgeous prose.' Roxana Robinson, New York Times 'London pulls off the tricky feat of making the act of reflection suspenseful, turning the past into a living, unfinished thing, still bristling with what could be.' New Yorker"
