Separation, Paperback / softback Book


A compelling and moving domestic drama set in London.

Sally Emerson's timeless novel about the powers children have over their parents brims with wit and smart observations.

Tom is a respected cosmologist. Amanda is a high-flying management consultant. Kate is their new baby and Sarah is their nanny. And Alice is a child who lives on the other side of London and who has recently developed a taste for fairy tales because everyone, in the end, gets exactly what they deserve.

Told with Emerson's characteristic acuity and wit, Separation is a darkly humorous portrayal of domestic life.
