really liked it

Not my usual sort of book - I'm not a literary fiction reader, normally, but I thought I would try one of my periodic forays into the high-brow.

I loved it. One of those books that I was sorry to finish I wish I could plunge back in and meet all the protagonists again. Jess Speight is the main character - an anthropologist with a mentally disabled child, in North London in the 1960s and on to (approx) present day. Not much happens, but everything happens, illness, love, death and friendship. I don't know how to tell if someone would like this, but I hope you try it, and become as absorbed as me - I'll certainly be trying out more by the author.
