Description:
A mother comes to visit her daughter in hospital after having not seen her in many years. Her unexpected visit forces Lucy to confront her past, uncovering long-buried memories of a profoundly impoverished childhood; and her present, as the facade of her new life in New York begins to crumble, awakening her to the reality of her faltering marriage and her unsteady journey towards becoming a writer. From Lucy's hospital bed, we are drawn ever more deeply into the emotional complexity of family life, the inescapable power of the past, and the memories - however painful - that bind a family together.

Reviews
Milebush book group had a good discussion after reading this book. It is metafiction, in a sparely written style. Lucy reviews her life with the New York Chrysler building as a hospital back-drop. Her background is one of extreme poverty and abuse; she especially examines the relationship with her mother, longing to be told she is loved. It is easy to relate to, then moving on to consider the relationships with her own husband and two daughters. Generally members found the book enjoyable with a rating of 4/5.

What a marvellous novel. It's about Covid; it's about love, marriage and family; it's about a divide
