"...the structure is masterly, and the writing pungent." (The Times)
"Shocking yet redemptive, this is a classical tragedy reinvested with chilling contemporary relevance." (The Observer)"Johnston has written a powerful book. She sensitively examines those themes - of paternity, of reality - that have always been the domain of literature... [Her] literary references never complicate her writing, but illuminate it, creating a rich and perceptive blend of poetry and experience." (Times Literary Supplement)
Before a quarter of the book had been read I guessed the outcome. Old plot. The voice of the reader sounds older than the person it is supposed to be. An easy listen but nothing special.
