About this book
Jonathan Coe's latest novel, now in paperback, where it will achieve substantial sales. Like McEwan's "Atonement", it is the book that has brought Coe to a much wider audience, and it is a beautifully rendered family tragedy, spanning three generations. Penguin are also republishing his backlist to coincide. 'Spectacular, heartbreaking, beautifully written... Impossible to put down, I loved every moment of it' "Sunday Express"
When Rosamund, a reluctant bearer of family secrets, dies suddenly, a mystery is left for her niece Gill to unravel. Some photograph albums and tapes point towards a blind girl named Imogen whom no one has seen in twenty years.
