Customer Review

on 8 February 2013
I loved reading these seemingly simple stories. The author skilfully injects an air of strangeness into superficially mundane subject matter such as a child's swimming lesson or the school run. There are fairy tale elements too, and a virtouso use of the rare and difficult second person narrative. These stories feel personal and real, whilst at the same time tapping into our common experience of the weirdness of the every day. Tolstoy says "Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way." Bray demonstrates that every family is strange in its own way. Can't wait to read more.
