Meg Howrey Bloomsbury £16.99 The former dancer’s fourth novel is, on one level, a book about ballet. Every aspect of its protagonist Carlisle’s life has been shaped by dance, from her mother’s career as a ballerina to her father and his partner’s lives in the tight-knit ballet circles of AIDS-struck 1980s New York. But it is also about so much more. Howrey deftly jumps through decades and lives to write a taut, moving evocation of the love and hurt contained within families and the difficulty of forgiveness.
