Given that a narrator hoves into view only briefly before being usurped by another, the structure never falters. The voices of redundant workers mix with those affected by a withered economic landscape. The story of a woman whose retired father becomes de facto caretaker on the crumbling estate in which she lives is particularly heartbreaking. The novel seethes with age-old hurt and disillusionment.
