a good book
I started reading this novel on the tube, and between Mile End and Tottenham Court Road I only made it four-and-a-half pages in--because I had to read them twice. They were that good. And the rest of the book was just as satisfying. I love Helen Garner's writing style. She is a master at saying a lot with a little, leaving just the right amount of open space for readers to fill in themselves.
