Her son and daughter arrive too late to see her, but the end of their mothers life marks the beginning of their own story: one of secrets, strangers, and the ultimate retelling of everything they thought they knew.

His ability to evoke the atmosphere of a city is almost Dickensian Guardian Full of insight: on the state of Russia, Britain and the US; and on the nature of music, addiction, love and sex.

Not since What a Carve Up! has there been such an absorbing indictment of the family Independent on Sunday
