I have yet to read a better account of the way in which the tales we tell about ourselves are themselves a form of addiction.
An absolute belter
I was blown away by Crazy. Brilliant
Set amid the debris of a marriage which still haunts her, Feaver's beautifully written and startlingly frank book is so humane in its hard-won wisdom that every reader will recognise themselves in it.
This book is brilliant - brave, truthful and intelligent
Stunning . . . Tackling sex, writing and office politics, Jane shrewdly eyes her youthful guilelessness in a satisfyingly rich and complex narrative that rings so messily true to life, it almost feels transgressive
[One of the] most startling novels I've read this year and would recommend for total holiday immersion.
Terribly funny, appallingly grim, acutely observed. It's wonderful
Crackles with energy, integrity and a deep poetic sensibility
Taut, intelligent and engaging
Wonderful. Heart-bumpingly evocative of place and time, and a resonant, compelling act of creative remembering, of early life regrets and mistakes that might not have been either
