Turn Again Home book. This was the second book I have read by Carol Birch and it was completely different from Jamrach's Menagerie, a Victorian pastiche

Turn Again Home book. Greyhound racing at Belle Vue, the buses. This was the second book I have read by Carol Birch and it was completely different from Jamrach's Menagerie, a Victorian pastiche. Turn Again Home is an extremely well written family saga that was long-listed for the 2003 Booker prize. This story of an extended family set between WWI and the 1970's portrays the historical changes that affect the family in both subtle and direct ways.

Turn Again Home book.

Technically speaking, Turn Again Home is Carol Birch's "breakout book". For those unfamiliar with book-trade jargon, the breakout book generally turns up 10 years or so into the career of the moderately successful novelist, when a publisher, conscious of diminishing returns, pronounces that fatal homily about the necessity of "reaching a wider public". Sadly, such endeavours usually end in tears
