Patrick Gale chronicles the facts of life that steer a family through three generations in East Anglia. What lends an operatic scale to this superb and often sobering novel are the themes (birth, death, love, creativity) and topical afflictions (the holocaust, street crime, AIDS) ordaining their fate. Wonderfully vivid, this novel is peopled with characters who compel you to care.
