Why did Neve and Edwyn marry? As you read Neve's account of her chaotic and nomadic single life you wonder what drew her to Edwyn and when he talks to her the way he does, why on earth does she stay? Can this be love? Some truly disagreeable minor characters but also some sympathetic and infuriatingly comic ones. An unusual and entertaining novel. Shortlisted for the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction 2017.
