Marion Halligan is one of our finest writers and this is as perfect a novel
as any she has written.
William – successful, cultured, convivial – dies of a heart attack in a
pool. The business of burying and mourning him is complicated by his
past: two ex-wives, one of whom is still bitter at his desertion, a current
wife, the child he had with each, the lover no one suspected him of
having, the friends and business partners, his brother. As they come
together, it seems not one of them knew everything about the man he
was, although they hold pieces of the whole.
As they grieve in their different ways, they also struggle with the
lives they lead, the frustrations and insecurities and fears of everyday
existence. But they also have their joys and triumphs and small
Halligan has a keen eye for the human condition, for relationships
and connections, and this insightful and tightly crafted novel is full of
finely drawn characters. Her prose is sharp yet elegant (a description
of people in a gym as tortoise faces growing out of dolphins has stuck
with me!), her sympathies carefully placed, and the inevitable messiness
of living and loving is beautifully rendered. Utterly satisfying.
