9780099582519: Mother of Pearl

Explores the territory of the divided self. Through the story of the kidnapping of a baby, the notion of personal history as received fiction is examined. Using the device of a split narrative, the novel asks such questions as: what makes a family?; what keeps it together?; and what tears it apart?
