A really interesting book, but one I probably would never have picked up myself. It has a switching 1st person POV from 2 brothers, one an artist and one with a learning disability. Their opposing views of the events - both vehement, bold and blunt - give great depth of understanding and add a human touch to what would otherwise be a bleak tale. The character building was subtle and intimate, and left you with an insight into the brothers lives and their interdependence that was both sad and strangely sweet.
