Reviews
Reading Group review - There was 100% approval of this insightful book. We decided "memoir" was a suitable label, although we could sense careful subtle structuring of the episodes. Several members liked the fact that it was possible to read a chapter with a sense of its independent value. Definitely there is a humour, but there is also a serious consideration of aging, mortality and island living. It is a book of human kindness. Highly recommend it.
