Interesting, short "family memoir" by this contemporary oft-married British novelist (b. 1937). Tennant is a member of a prominent literary and political "faux-aristocratic" Scottish family with plenty of eccentricity in its gene pool.

I'm not sure what to make of Tennant's peculiar prose style. Perhaps it is elegantly opaque, or maybe she just needs a good editor.
