So off Domina goes to an unprepossessing room in an inelegant neighbourhood where she hopes to get out of her privileged rut. With scarcely a pause she begins to write a play about her situation and the other people in her boarding house. But as she plays with these earthy folk, the consequences are far graver than she could have imagined; this is life, all right, and it’s not what she’d bargained for. Ease is a second novel by a young Briton whose gifts and insights are notable.
