Sacred Country: Rose Tremain

Mary Ward is growing up in rural Suffolk in the grisly 1950s knowing she's really a boy. Her parents are useless- one brutal and the other fey- and there's an abattoir next door. So far, so kitchen sink but for all its horrors- and they not glossed over- this is a lyrical, funny book- a celebration of misfits and misfittery.

If Tremain were our creator we'd be on a roll because she loves us all no matter what.
