Not really sure about this one! A very adult book – definitely for mature senior readers.
I really enjoyed the social history of San Fransisco – the development of the city; the segregation of immigrants; the French connection; the gender discussions and the development of the economy. However I was not that taken with the actual storyline and the use of lyrics.
This is the third Donaghue I have read – The sealed letter and The room being the others – all very different.
