Avatar for EmilyEm EmilyEm said:
Four interconnected stories make up this book that was shortlisted for last year’s Man Booker prize. Hall’s writing from four perspectives is pitch perfect—the young blind girl and aging artist in 1960s Italy and the father and daughter in contemporary north-east England mourning the loss of her twin brother. Exquisite. I’m sorry I waited so long to read it although Peter was a raunchy bugger and a little larger than life. Interesting both he and Italian artist characters were homage to real people.
