Maggie GalehouseMestre-Reed's writing is often vivid, his dissection of relationships tight and knowing, yet this book isn't an easy read. Única's family history is complicated, and a romantic side story involving her gay grandson and a male nurse drains energy from the main narrative. But Mestre-Reed's depiction of illness in old age, with all its indignities and comic moments, is masterly.
