Something like happy

Burnside, John, 1955-2014
Books
In these remarkable stories, John Burnside takes us into the lives of men and women trapped in marriage, ensnared by drink and diminished by disappointment; all kinds of women, all kinds of men - lonely, unfaithful, dying - driving empty roads at night. These are people for whom the idea of 'home' has become increasingly intangible, and happiness, grace and freedom all now seem to belong in some kind of dream or a fable they might have read in a children's picture book.
