There's almost a fairytale aspect to this story from 2000 of the prodigal returning, in this case the prodigal daughter ... Tilly is a fun and dark creation.
Blessed with an astringently unsentimental tone and a talent for creating memorably eccentric characters, Ham also possesses a confidently brisk and mischievous sense of plot
Ham writes delightfully rich set pieces and descriptive passages ... her eye for the absurd, the comical and the poignant are highly tuned ... one to savour and enjoy
