Anita Mostyn feels the need to take a holiday from her life. As a child, she was dismissed by her parents in favour of her more confident brothers, and as an adult, her choices are disapproved of - the small art gallery she works for, the friends she makes, the men she sees. On a whim, she takes up an offer to scout for holiday properties in Bulgaria, escaping the impending second wedding of her perfect brother. But as Anita navigates these difficult waters, a horrifying episode in her past - the thing she has really been trying to escape - comes back to haunt her.

A triumph
Independent - Susie Boyt

So deliciously written that it's worth re-reading to savour the images she conjures up...it's a joy to read
Daily Mail - Clare Colvin

We're lucky to have such an intelligent chronicler of our present - and of the dirty, noisy beauty of contemporary London
Guardian - Tessa Hadley

Easy to read and oddly compelling...a memorable, and very clever, book
Sunday Times - Lucy Atkins

Funny and real as well as impressively sympathetic...this perceptive, engaging little novel says a great deal about human vulnerability, resilience and the passivity that too often goes unnoticed.
Irish Times - Eileen Battersby
