"Laughing out loud funny" stod det i en engelsk recension och det är bara att hålla med. Jag hade den med på en resa och läste stora delar högt för mitt resesällskap (som sedan lånade den och forfarande inte lämnat tillbaka!). Ändå är innehållet allvarligt, Mrs Winterson var verkligen ett monster till adoptivmor. Det känns klichéfyllt att prata om "humor och värme", men jag kan inte beskriva med andra ord. Läs!
