Kirsty Gunn Ý 8 summary

Rain author Kirsty GuTwelve year old Janey and her younger brother Jim spend summers at a lake with their parents Ignored for long stretches and then called upon suddenly to mix. This is one of those surprising chance finds that I'd never have picked up if she and I weren't from the same clan This is Gunn's debut novel The prose is wet poignant and understated Give yourself an hour or so on a rainy day and you'll finish it off This is a great example of the kind of captivating prose and powerful story telling I've always aspired to I'm especially impressed with her ability to recapture the feelings of powerlessness in childhood the joy in play and the sadness left in the wake after it's all overThis is a fantastic author and I'm glad to see her career has continued to move forward Looks like I've got some catching up to do with her
