Reviewed in the United States on May 20, 2015
An absorbing story of four friends who grew up in NW section of London, an impoverished area of immigrants. The novel has been compared to Ulysses, a rather carless comparison I think but it is not hard to believe that Ms Smith was influenced by it. In any case the book is rather constructed like a bustling street scene with many conversations and actions bubbling up and gaining your attention subsiding as another surfaces and it makes for a rather musical read which I enjoyed though people who like a more structured novel or at least story arc will find it difficult going.
