Beautifully written novel about marital infidelity from a Booker-shortlistee
The pages all but turn themselves. This is contemporary family drama at its most compelling, and with a brutally exquisite ending.
Hugely enjoyable, a unique love story that’s both witty and poignant.
What really makes this book so impressive and enjoyable is the writing, whether it is Woodward’s occasional tongue-in-cheek similes or his convincing insights into all manner of things
