Amanda Craig vividly portrays the complexity of modern-day London through the lives of a diverse group of characters, some British and others who have come to live here from abroad either legally or illegally.

The novel was reminiscent of Charles Dickens, both in its interweaving of lives and its social awareness. She tackles the controversial subject of illegal immigration and asylum seekers with insight and sensitivity.

Having lived in London for a number of years I was impressed with her ability to bring the city with its lights and shadows alive.

This was a reading group selection and we all felt it was excellent.
