Something to Tell You
follows the fortunes of a successful psychoanalyst who, as the book opens, is reflecting on his coming-of-age in 1970s suburbia, on his first love (a relationship that continues to haunt him), and on a brutal act of violence from which he can never escape.
The book brilliantly captures that decade’s sense of sexual freedom, and the exhilaration of the drug culture - as well as the violent struggle between the forces of labour and capital. The events of those years provide a vivid backdrop to the drama that develops thirty years later as the characters face an encroaching middle age with the traumas of their youth still unresolved.
