"This is a fascinating book, the story of a child'saccidental death and how an English family dealt with it - or rather, didn'tdeal with it. Clear-eyed, very sad, funny at times and, despite the story it tells, ultimatelyuplifting in its determination to confront buried truths."—Sebastian Faulks, author of Birdsong and Where My Heart Used to Beat

Fueled by Beard's dark humor and lacerating intelligence, thisferociously original memoir examines the ways in which we create mythologies tohelp us cope with unbearable tragedy.
