Reviews
Reading Group Review. We would recommend this novel but with some reservations. Some of the opinions were that the author had ‘lost her way’ with the novel’s focus. Various styles of marriages were presented, inviting comparisons. We liked the inter-weaving of current and past event narratives and the sense that a poet regained her powers. There were some fine comic moments to appreciate, and a variety of literary references that stimulated discussion.
