PATRICK GALE Notes From An Exhibition
Recommended for anyone who likes fiction to be about real life, rather than simply an escape from it. Revolves around the life of Rachel, an artist whose life has been shaped by bouts of manic depression, and her family, including her husband, Anthony, who is a Quaker, and their four children. The novel has much to commend it: an accutely sensitive account of the pain caused by bipolar disorder, both to sufferers and to their families, it also manages to retain a sense of warmth and humanity that is both redemptive and tragic. A must have on your shelves....
