"'If London never writes another word, The Good Parents is more than enough... Achingly good.' Cath Kenneally, Australian 'Wise, true, funny, tragic... The quality of observation, close-focus and long-range, is so sharp you'll jab Post-it notes on every page. Every character, completely understood from the inside, is matchlessly right and irreplaceable.' Cath Kenneally, Australian 'Underwritten by a wealth of human understanding... the results are as powerful as they are unsettling.' Michael McGirr, Sydney Morning Herald 'London's dark and lovely work is both a novel of ideas and one of emotions... the mystery of enthrallment only deepens, irradiated by London's gorgeous prose.' Roxana Robinson, New York Times 'London pulls off the tricky feat of making the act of reflection suspenseful, turning the past into a living, unfinished thing, still bristling with what could be.' New Yorker"Book Description:
From the author of Gilgamesh - longlisted for the Orange Prize - comes a novel of loss and longing that goes right to the heart of the struggle to belong.
'A richly detailed, expertly written exploration of the rebellions and yearnings of family life... Very impressive and completely engaging.' Daily Mail
