About this book
Cusk's classic comic novel, available for the first in Faber editions. A rich and subtle story about embarrassment, awkwardness and being alone.
Stella Benson sets off for Hilltop, a tiny Sussex village housing a family that is somewhat larger than life. Her hopes for the Maddens may be high, but her station among them, as au pair to their irascible son Martin - is undeniably low. What could possibly have driven her to leave her home, job and life in London for such rural ignominy?
