Accidentally on purpose

Title:

2 out of 5 stars

Family on a break at a Norfolk cottage are visited by Amber, a bizarre individual who invades their lives, shakes them all up and then leaves, leaving them in fragments.

Nice premise, well written, entertaining in some parts, insightful narrative and some great characterisation but ultimately unsatisfactory I felt. The switch of perspectives is at times irritating but nevertheless, for some of the characters, it does work quite well.

But, overall, just doesn't quite cut if for me.

It's all a bit blurred (already) but opening session of the AC21 International Forum here at Warwick has gone extremely well. A really stimulating and insightful presentation by Georges Haddad of Unesco has got us off to a flyer!

The photo – apologies, it's appalling – is of President Hirano of Nagoya University, delivering his opening remarks.
