After the last Did Not Finish, I am now worried I’ve gone off fiction (will have to rethink the holiday reading pile if I have!)

This was an odd little novel about the infidelities and nastinesses of a group of middle-aged, middle-class people, linked by the fact that the three main women shared a flat for a year in the youth.  It’s a bit like a more downmarket Anita Brookner or (Wilson’s friend) Iris Murdoch without the philosophy.  It just felt nasty and waspish and I don’t think I’d have persevered with it if it hadn’t been so short.

The cover is good for BookCrossing Never Judge A Book By Its Cover though, as it has lots of different things on it…
