Samenvatting

A dazzling novel about modern love up against the confusing, sad aches of mental illness - with all its highs, lows, humour and misery. SHORTLISTED FOR THE WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION THE BOOK EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT 'Just read it. It's unforgettable' India Knight, The Sunday Times 'Probably the best book you'll read this year' Mail on Sunday 'Completely brilliant. I think every girl and woman should read it' Gillian Anderson 'Exactly the book to read right now, when you need a laugh, but want to cry' Observer 'The most wonderful, heartbreakingly gorgeous novel of the year' Elizabeth Day, author of Magpie 'A raucously funny, beautifully written, emotion-bashing book' The Times 'I was making a list of all the people I wanted to send it to, until I realised that I wanted to send it to everyone I know' Ann Patchett, author of The Dutch House 'One of those "read it in one sitting and tell all your friends" kind of books' Evening Standard 'Patrick Melrose meets Fleabag. Brilliant' Clare Chambers, author of Small Pleasures Everyone tells Martha Friel she is clever and beautiful, a brilliant writer who has been loved every day of her adult life by one man, her husband Patrick. A gift, her mother once said, not everybody gets. So why is everything broken? Why is Martha - on the edge of 40 - friendless, practically jobless and so often sad? And why did Patrick decide to leave? Maybe she is just too sensitive, someone who finds it harder to be alive than most people. Or maybe - as she has long believed - there is something wrong with her. Something that broke when a little bomb went off in her brain, at 17, and left her changed in a way that no doctor or therapist has ever been able to explain. Forced to return to her childhood home to live with her dysfunctional, bohemian parents (but without the help of her devoted, foul-mouthed sister Ingrid), Martha has one last chance to find out whether a life is ever too broken to fix - or whether, maybe, by starting over, she will get to write a better ending for herself.
