Margaret had two, which were epauletted like generalissimi; they ran on wheels. Even a small woman can pull them behind her with ease,’ said Margaret. Even a small woman can pull them behind her with ease,’ said Margaret ay and age. The English gentleman is a dying breed. And would die shortly, if John’s clothing were anything to go by, of embarrassment. He was dressed in a regulation 1920s-nursery overcoat with velvet collar, nicely piped in red. ‘Don’t you just love my hat?’ asked its wearer. It was certainly a creation.

Candia McWilliam was born in Edinburgh

Candia McWilliam was born in Edinburgh. She is the author of A Case of Knives (1988), which won a Betty Trask Prize; A Little Stranger (1989); Debatable Land (1994), which was awarded the Guardian Fiction Prize and the Premio Grinzane Cavour in its Italian translation for the best foreign novel of the year; and a collection of stories, Wait Till I Tell You (1997). I close this book with a definite feeling I've been to one of those snooty plays where they allude to people and places us common folks don't know. McWilliams has in this novella confused wordiness with erudition.

I close this book with a definite feeling I've been to one of those snooty plays where they allude to people and places us common folks don't know. I refuse to feel as if I may just be The Great Unwashed... the Undereducated... McWilliams has in this novella confused wordiness with erudition.
There is an interesting story here, and sections of it are beautifully told. It is with regret that I give such a low rating, and that is due to the author apparently trying to draw layers and layers, and yet more layers of words and half-formed thoughts across your path. You are not only slowed and a bit confused, you actually start to drown on the lyrical but extraneous paragraphs - thrown like a vapor over the story.
Some of the characters take shape and life; the wife, the little son, and the Nanny. They are fleshed out and you can hear them breathe and speak. The husband is of cardboard, perhaps due to the shortness of this volume, probably intentionally as a sort of pivot for the main cast.
The after-taste was disapointing, as if I were given a pretty treat that some layers were tasty cookie and jam and then I bit into a layer of boiled turnips. Speaking of food; this author does bravely and skillfully handle the painful subject of a national crisis (not only here in the USA but many countries) of facing eating disorders, both anorexia and bulimia. Kudos for that.

I found this a pretentious tale - thin in content and over-precious in language. The style in fact is positively annoying. It promised far more than it gave. Not an author I will follow with any interest.
