Margaret Forster has a amazing talent for packing period, scene, action and emotion into a single sentence. In Keeping the World Away she presents a painting -- a rather famous one, at that, of a corner of a room -- and gives us an intergenerational picture of its affect on various people. The book is a time piece, full of characters that enchant and intrigue.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
This is a book with enough depth to fascinate through several readings but it is not a book for someone who prefers the light fare that pervades the contemporary "best seller" lists.
