A quarter of the way into this I really wanted to like it because it's so beautifully written and is local to me, but wasn't sure I'd be able to make myself care enough for the character and her issues that seemed a little too removed from what I can relate to and bordering on the softly mundane. Three-quarters of the way through I'd been reminded how powerful subtle understatement can be with a little time, because I was completely involved in Iris's life, found myself feeling what she felt as though she were a real person I knew. Reserved, but quietly excellent.
