Read full description of the books:
Glorious. There were some aspects of Clara, the central character, with which I strongly identified (difficult family life, university providing a means of escape etc). Others, not so much (she is one of life's takers, it seems to me and perhaps incapable of love). The characters, in point of fact, were part of the great strength of this novel. We first meet Clara at the theatre in London with friends for a poetry recital. We learn that she comes originally from a Yorkshire town called Northam, which she was desperate to leave, and is spending her time at uni acquiring both friends and taste. The novel follows her deepening friendship with the charming Clelia and family, of whom she would no doubt be insanely jealous were it not for the great affection she feels for them. Deftly Drabble draws her story to its satisfying conclusion, revealing along the way that Clara is, perhaps, more like her mother than she knew or would care to admit.
Wonderful stuff. A swift, absorbing read which I highly recommend.
