The sort of book which instantly feels prize-worthy, this is a novel which starts out like Edith Wharton and ends up somewhere totally different. The stories nestled within stories, the unreliable information and the blurring between fact and fiction make for a book which gets more and more satisfying and intriguing with each page.
