Arlington Park - Rachel Cusk


I was so bewildered by this that I checked its reviews on Amazon, which were equally split between one and five star opinions. I'd tend towards the one star. On the plus side, it's unusually feminist and has some amusing turns of phrase, but otherwise it's a collection of vignettes about a group of middle-class women with no discernable differences in personality, all hating their husbands and children. Enormously overwritten, with metaphors that didn't make sense, and two or three words that I had to look up in the dictionary. What is the author trying to prove?
