Glasshopper Review: “a brilliant debut”

Sainsbury’s Magazine

Sainsburys Glasshopper Review Nov 09

“Winner of the 2008 Mail on Sunday novel prize, this is a brilliant debut.  Balancing Mary’s story of growing up in the 1950s and 1960s with her son Jake’s experiences of boyhood in the 1980s, it moves between middle-class Hove and the backstreets of Portsmouth.  A compelling portrait of family life, the past returns to bite Mary and Jake with dramatic repercussions.”
