Very Cold People by Sarah Manguso

£14.99

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.
