At a suburban barbecue, a man slaps a child who is not his own… Whose side are you on?
‘Brilliant, beautiful, shockingly lucid and real, this is a novel as big as life built from small, secret, closely observed beats of the human heart. A cool, calm, irresistible masterpiece.’ Chris CleaveTweet
In my top 5 books ever. Very clever. Fantastically interesting to see the exact same event as perceived by the different characters. Can't believe this made the marmite list!
