A Persephone book!
Lovely – a deep read and a page-turner, about a husband and wife taking on a role reversal in 1950s small town America. Very pro-child and some beautiful thoughts and sentiments put into the husband’s mouth. The smallest boy is very well observed, and I loved the details about the store too – again, well-observed.
Another lovely Persephone. This was meant to be a home read but I ended up taking it in to work and getting grubby librarian fingerprints on it, which thankfully wiped off!
