I absolutely loved this novel. Fanny Howe strips away all needless information and leaves you with the bare-bones underlying relationships. Her writing is lyric. Her characters are roughhewn. And her settings seem like they¿re out on the very precipice of existence, while being just down the street from where you, the reader, live. Like Jane Austen, Fanny Howe understands what motivates different personality types¿their appetites, fears, and vulnerabilities¿but unlike the world of Austen, in Howe¿s world the polite manners are thrown out, leaving her characters floating in a sea of isolation. I highly recommend this book. I also recommend Howe¿s In the Middle of Nowhere. I can't praise Fanny Howe's gift enough.
