      Marvellous. Tim Parks has a gift for skewering the dynamics of a relationship, for expressing unflinchingly what we often really feel (but don't say!). This exceptional novel deals with the fraught issue of parenting a severely handicapped child.

      this was the first novel by this author I've read and I was surprised at how much I disliked it. May read another to see what I think. Really like his stories of life in Italy but this fiction was grim with unlikable characters.

      Some parts of this book was very confusing but it was a fast read.

      Humorous, sad, and ironic. A story of a couple who have a severly handicapped child and how they cope or don't cope. A bit odd.
