Heard one of her stories read by Roddy Doyle.
Two best friends were fifteen in 1972. They spent the summer together, breaking rules, flaunting authority, having fun, and experiencing heartache.
A bittersweet little novella, bursting at the seams with GIRLness. A lovely afternoon read.
There are some great passages in this book. What is missing enough character development to make the subject herself one with whom one could find empathy. The main character is relentlessly self absorbed, whether doing harm or being contrite. Something is missing. I found this a disappointing experience as a story. And all the curly prose surrounding some of the events and moments do not match the tone of the novel. Embellishments cannot hold the reader.
