Gail Honeyman’s — Eleanor Elephant is completely fine *****

Eleanor harbours a deep secret, not only from everyone, but also from herself. She lives a solitary life in Glasgow until she needs a colleague, Raymond, to fix her work computer. Eleanor slowly blooms when she meets other people through Raymond, but her childhood comes to haunt her.

There are laughable moments when the author betrays Eleanor’s take on her world. But this is a beautifully written sad story of an adult coming to terms with loss and a difficult childhood.
