When Alison comes out as homosexual herself in late adolescence, the denouement is swift, graphic, and redemptive.Interweaving between childhood memories, college life and present day, and through narrative that is equally heartbreaking and fiercely funny, Alison looks back on her complex relationship with her father and finds they had more in common than she ever knew.’A groundbreaking masterpiece’ The Independent’A finely woven blend of yearning and euphoric fantasy’ Evening Standard**ONE OF THE GUARDIAN’S 100 BEST BOOKS OF THE 21st CENTURY**
