Brilliant and affecting,
This review is from: The Lucky Ones (Paperback)
I think Rachel Cusk is a fabulous writer and The Lucky Ones is one of my favourites amongst her work. More like a series of short stories than a novel, each one is beautifully crafted. She creates the most realistic and recognisable characters and writes with seemingly effortless originality in terms of language. She writes sentences and creates pictures that are, I think, often quite breathtaking in their ability to penetrate and impact. She makes me wince, laugh, cry and nod. It feels like a privilege to read what she has written sometimes - her bravery and honesty are rare and precious and she makes you think as well as feel - whilst you're reading and long after.
