"Cusk has inherited the gift of holding our attention as she shows us the things that humans do"

Kudos is an education... Novels are artificial things, after all, and this one stretches the form to its limits in a way that is almost (sorry, Rachel) playful and fun... Cusk has inherited the gift of holding our attention as she shows us the things that humans do. Chatting away long into the night, her not-very-dramatic personae draw you so powerfully into their world that by the time you get to the peeing in the sea bit, all cynicism is forgotten and you’re glad to be along for the ride.
