Claire is a young TV journalist wrecking her first big interview. Claire’s boyfriend discovers more than he bargains for when he begins to read her diary.And whatever she does, Claire is always living in the shadow of a monstrous mother.’Brilliant, bracing… Dazzling… One of the many triumphs of this original, peculiarly truthful book is to leave us questioning what kindness is and what care is’ Lara Feigel, Guardian’Leviston is a mistress of precision and emotional insight’ Hilary Mantel, TLS’Frances Leviston’s debut work of fiction positively knocked my socks off’ Mia Levitin, Financial Times
