Piercingly insightful and written with great pace and rhythm, this story’s exploration of a generational relationship and the shifts brought about by aging and ensuing descendants, is a very satisfying read. It throws light on our vulnerabilities and the lengths and idiosyncrasies we adopt to defend and arm ourselves – often alienating ourselves through stubborn resistance. The coping mechanisms adopted to deflect feelings of invisibility, loneliness and loss of personal power, coupled with a growing powerlessness in the face of inexorable change, and the sheer speed of everyday life amid baffling and seemingly insurmountable challenges and technological advances. This story proves that every generation ultimately wants the same thing: to know they belong.
