Publisher's Summary

Amid the leafy avenues and comfortable houses, the residents of Arlington Park live out the dubious accomplishments of civilisation: material prosperity, personal freedom, and moral indifference. Men work, women look after children, and people generally do what's expected of them. Set over the course of a single rainy day, this novel moves from one household to another, and through the passing hours conducts a deep examination of its characters' lives - of Juliet, Amanda, Solly, and Maisie. And of Christine, whose troubled, hilarious spirit presides over Arlington Park and the way of life it represents.

Fantastic characters

I loved this. Rachel Cusk is such a fine writer with an amazing ability to create subtle, dark and fascinating characters.

Wrong reader

Jilly Bond would be the perfect reader for a light, English mystery story, perhaps an Agatha Christie, but her style lacks the gravitas for this book.
