A troubling, elegantly written tragicomedy set in London in the early '60s. Excellent characterization and a leisurely, but never dull, pace.
I would definitely try another book written by Norman Collins. I would never ever buy anything narrated by Matthew Frow. I'm only about an hour in and already his performance is helping to ruin a perfectly good book. It's not only the verbal ticks - almost pronounced al (as in Capone)-most, ditto any other word starting with al - but the fact that he has an unerring knack of getting the emphasis of virtually every word in every sentence wrong. The experience is similar to that of a computer "reading" the book to you except the computer would get the feel better. I am not an actor but I could do much, much better. If I didn't want to hear what happens I would definitely exchange this
