The Smell of Other People's Houses

I really enjoyed reading this book. Quite probably my personal favourite from this years selection.
The 4 stories are skilfully interwoven - the characters are beautifully filled out as the story progresses and the overlap between the characters is skilfully done. Sympathetically written, the difficult topics of loss, abandonment and death are movingly told.
The ending had me in tears but was also pretty much how I had hoped it would finish!
Very well worth a read.
