The Accidental

by Ali Smith

Is it about the consequences of internet bullying? Or a stranger muscling her way in on a family? Or a dysfunctional family failing even to notice that they are in a crisis? Or a woman trying to make a career? Or even a man failing to make a career? Who knows? Read it for yourself, and see what you think.
