Ebenezer Le Page, a man of the Channel Islands, tells his story and from the moment we meet him, in mid sentence, we are spellbound. He is funny and contrary with a furious, loving attachment to the past and an old man's querulousness towards the new. His is a life crammed rich with family quarrels and tragedies, and neighboring feuds that reach on across generations and between sexes. A remarkable creation, this is a hypnotic story of enduring friendships and sorrows, joys and loves, kinships and animosities, a brilliant and intricate novel.
