The Artificial Anatomy Of Parks

Author:

Kat Gordon

Synopsis:

At twenty-one, Tallulah Park lives alone in a grimy bedsit, where a strange damp smell causes her to wake up wheezing. When she finds out her estranged father has had a heart attack and arranges to visit him, she isn't looking forward to seeing her relatives again. Years before, she was being tossed around her difficult family: a world of sniping aunts, precocious cousins, emigrant pianists and lots of gin, all presided over by an unconventional grandmother. But no one was answering Tallie's questions: why did Aunt Vivienne loathe Tallie's mother? Who was Uncle Jack, and why would no one talk about him? And why was everyone making excuses for her absent father? As Tallie grows up, she learns the hard way that in the end, the worst betrayals are those we inflict on ourselves...
