We are all completely besides ourselves
An achingly funny, deeply serious heart-breaker. A moral comedy to shout about from the treetops.
Shortlisted for The Man Booker Prize for Fiction 2014.
Rosemary doesn't talk very much, and about certain things she's silent. She had a sister, Fern, who vanished from her life in circumstances she wishes she could forget.
Now at college, Rosemary starts to see that she can't go forward without going back, back to the time when, aged five, she was sent away from home to her grandparents and returned to find Fern gone.
