The Artificial Anatomy Of Parks
“An excellent read.”
“A compellingly-paced and emotionally-absorbing debut novel; the tangles and tragedies of Tallulah Park's young life, past and present, are captivating,
as are her vivid character and vibrant, complex relatives. A wonderful read.”
At twenty-one, Tallulah Park lives
alone in a grimy bedsit, where a
strange damp smell causes her to
wake up wheezing. When she finds
out her estranged father has had a heart attack and arranges to visit him, she isn't looking forward to seeing her relatives again. Years before, she was being tossed around her difficult family: a world of sniping aunts, precocious cousins, emigrant pianists and lots of gin, all presided over by an unconventional grandmother. But no one was answering Tallie's questions: why did Aunt Vivienne loathe Tallie's mother? Who was Uncle Jack, and why would no one talk about him? And why was everyone making excuses for her absent father? As Tallie grows up, she learns the hard way that in the end, the worst betrayals are those we inflict on ourselves...
