Sarah Broadhurst's view...

I suppose it is easily done; chatting in the chemist as you follow a disgruntled customer who leaves his medication which you pick up by mistake and then take? Well, thatâs how our Dad of two teenagers falls into his coma. This is a tale of how the teenagers cope, how Dad copes once heâs awake and how the family cope, making this fresh American novel so poignant and refreshingly different.
Comparison: Alice Sebold, John Harding, Ben Sherwood.
Similar this month: Tony Parsons, Glen Duncan.
