Repeat it Today With Tears

by Anne Peile

An unusual and doomed romance which many people will find deeply disturbing. Although told in the first person by teenage Susanna, this is definitely not a teenage novel. The writing style is descriptive and atmospheric and brilliantly captures early 1970's London. You may condemn Susanna's actions, but that will not stop you liking her and hoping that one day she will find contentment. A great and disturbing read. Longlisted for Orange Prize.

I do not recall that there was ever a time when I looked upon my father's face with anything but adoration
