Between a Wolf and a Dog
Alexandra Daw's review
Oct 14, 2016
This was easy to read. At times I was wondering why I kept reading because I didn't much care for some of the characters. It is a contemporary story. Perhaps one could even say very much a first world story. Hilary, a filmmaker, is dying and wants to choose her own death. Her husband has predeceased her and her daughters, now grownup with their own issues, are loving towards her but estranged from each other. The author's frank depiction of her characters keeps sentimentality at bay, but her lyrical voice resonates with love for them, and ultimately all our efforts to make the best of this fragile existence on this earth despite our faults.
