Case Histories: Kate Atkinson

Case Histories is the first Jackson Brodie. I could have done with reading it before the one with the dog. There he seemed tacked onto a story that didn't need him; here he fits. This is genre fiction, but with real heartache. You care about the dead people and the ones they leave behind. What I admire most about Atkinson is her determination to make sense of the matter of modern Britain. She's someone who likes to bang worlds together until they fit.
