About this deal

I loved this book so much. It's hard to overpraise. So funny and so sad and so hopeful -- Neil Gaiman Emily’s father, Michael, was a hugely famous pioneer of arts television, working with Joan Bakewell on Late Night Line-Up and making documentaries —always masking his semi-detached selfishness with pretentious quotations. Her mother, Christine Collins, an actress, seemed to be a rather sad figure whose career (such as it was) had been derailed by the arrival of two children. The following year, her mother landed a small acting role in Australia and left the sisters with two different families; their cat Treacle was rehomed. Their father’s many infidelities now out in the open, the girls had to tolerate — on a rare visit — his praise of his new girlfriend’s children. Emily’s judgment on his behaviour is all the more devastating for being lightly expressed. As you read, you admire her more and more.

Rachael suddenly became very ill, and passed away less than a month later from an aggressive form of cancer. In 2014, her mother was diagnosed with MND, passing away a year later, shortly followed by the death of her father a few months later. Within three short years she was completely on her own. “There’s something about the family you have grown up, in whatever form that takes, that defines you.

And then you’d get this sinking feeling of I’ve got no one to tell, no one understands this”
