A Man's Estate is a pretty compelling novel, somehow. I don't know that the story really adds up to anything special, but following the labyrinthine relationships between the characters and 'listening' to their (sometimes rambling) confessions of their secret feelings pulled me through it very quickly.

9 out of 10 for this excellent dark and brooding family drama. Told from different perspectives as the story develops we hear the voices of various family members and other residents of a small Welsh community.
