I've greatly enjoyed Atkinson's later works; her debut novel is on my TBR list. From Publishers Weekly: Atkinson's ebullient narrative style captures the troubled Lennox family with wit and poignant accuracy.
A deeply moving family story of happiness and heartbreak, Behind the Scenes at the Museum is bestselling author Kate Atkinson’s award-winning literary debut.
