But a third of the way in, the book changes course. The memorabilia are at odds with Dan's own memories, forcing him to delve into family secrets. The surface of their lives is rendered with scrupulous verisimilitude as the hidden story of their differences and ambitions snakes through the early pages. But Carter's vaudeville turn had something of the stage ham's showiness. A flawless fictional debut from a great young writer, shortlisted for the Whitbread First Novel Award. On his twenty-fifth birthday, Daniel is bequeathed a second no less unusual gift - a Victorian writing box, the legacy of his father and the repository of his youthful secrets, and of his current feelings of guilt.
