By Sarah Winman
The unforgettable and achingly tender new novel from Sarah Winman, author of the international bestseller WHEN GOD WAS A RABBIT and the Sunday Times Top Ten bestseller A YEAR OF MARVELLOUS WAYS.Tweet
A very sensitively written novel about sexual identity, love and friendship, families and loss. A poignant tale narrated by the two male protagonists that had me enthralled from the start. Winman's writing is absolutely beautiful and hits just the right tone for the story she's telling. I found it totally compelling, occassionally funny but mostly achingly sad. A fantastic read.
This is a beautiful and evocative little book. The writing is sparse and beautifully constructed. I especially like the way she draws out her character each one of them are vivid and interesting. It is a quiet little book about essentially ordinary people but i found myself totally immersed in their lives. I like all her books but this one is definitely my favorite
Sarah's best one yet - this was just wonderful. I read it pretty much in one greedy, emotional sitting. You can’t help but fall in love with these characters and lose yourself in the story. I cannot recommend enough.
