ePub Isabel and Rocco ePub

by Anna Stothard

A darkly compelling read, reminiscent of Ian McEwan's "The Cement Garden". The intensely close pairing of the titular Isabel and Rocco, siblings in their mid-late teens, are left alone when their parents seemingly inexplicably abandon them and the family home.

Told from Isabel's perspective what follows is a series of childhood memories of an almost frighteningly dysfunctional family, and a feeling of increasingly claustrophobic chaos as the two siblings become more dependent on each other in their symbolically decaying house.

The fact that Stothard penned this debut novel, and created this richly textured, foggily self absorbed narrative, whilst she herself was still at school is really quite incredible. She writes with the maturity and assured style of someone beyond her years.
