Fascinating memoir of respected British academic Lorna Sage's family, their (especially given the times) rather shocking behaviors and how those behaviors affected the author. There's much to be found on the net about Sage, who sadly died much too young at 57, seven days after winning the Whitbread award for this book. There's an excellent review of this book on the Guardian website, here:
A highly affecting read. Recommended.
