What a Carve Up! is two stories in one. The first is that of a writer trying to find his voice and his tragic short romance with a neighbor. The second story is that of a family implosion. The two intersect because the author has been working on a biography of the family for the last decade. In 2005, Radio 4 did a brilliant adaptation of the book and now having had the chance to also read the book, I think the abridging they did served the story well. There are many ponderous moments to this novel that slowed down the progress of the story to its insane conclusion.
