Very Cold People by Sarah Manguso


Reviewed by Imogen

This story really got under my skin. Manguso’s debut novel is sparsley written, but is rich in unease. In 1980’s Massachusetts, Ruthie comes of age amid a community obsessed with class, and is suffocated by the shame she inherits from her parents for not quite fitting in.

One for fans of ‘The Bell Jar’ – this is an unsettling but incredibly engrossing read.
