This beautifully crafted story about a marriage break-up and its effect on four children delicately reveals how lives can overlap and impinge on one another through proximity, suggestion and resemblance — and how secrets and lies eventually surface.

Jane Feaver was born in Durham in 1964. After reading English at university she worked at the Pitt Rivers Museum and then in the Poetry Department at Faber and Faber. In 2001 she moved to Devon with her daughter. Her second novel, Love Me Tender, was met with critical acclaim.Review:
"Poetic and perceptive, Feaver has delivered a raw account of martial disintegration and its bruising after effects" Guardian "Jane Feaver's debut novel is an emotionally accurate portrayal... She has nailed the relationships between the children precisely and with humour" -- Lisa Gee Independent "This is a first novel of extraordinary intelligence and charm ... It's a bleak enough narrative, but also extremely funny" The Times "An intimate portrait of a bohemian family in the sticks - great stuff" -- Blake Morrison Guardian "This is a memorable debut - and a confident book...There are no easy laughs, no sentimentality. Feaver is witty and inventive. Above all, she is sufficiently daring to allow truth and memory freedom to shape scenes that convince. The choreography is seamless, each character lives off the page and the narrative is an inevitable as it is unpredictable" -- Eileen Battersby Irish Times
