From the Orange Prize-winning author of PROPERTY, with a tale of sex, betrayal and the wilder side of human nature.
This is a tale of sex, betrayal and a walk on the wilder side of human nature, bristling with energy as three women from completely different background face a turning point in their lives.
Martin writes of the emotional desolation of a marriage break-up with clarity and candour. This is a powerful, challenging and draining novel. - MAIL ON SUNDAY (3.10.04) - Simon Shaw
