Top critical review
on 31 October 2011
Whilst Michael Frayn's book My Father's Fortune is very well written and very readable by the end of the book I neither knew Michael Frayn or his father, I only learnt what they did or are doing in their lives.
There seemed to be a lack of warmth and a lack of anything but a cold and dispassionate relationship between father and son.
I wonder if Mr Frayn wrote this book to compensate for a relationship which seemed strangly detached.
