“A wonderful book. Salley Vickers spins a spellbinding account of a family in distress” Elizabeth Strout, author of Olive Kitteridge

“Cousins takes the form of a threefold fictional memoir in which Vickers explores “family, that spider’s web of which we are all a part”, with its secrets, evasions and silences.” The Guardian

“A masterfully written family drama. This book grabbed me instantly with its beautifully descriptive language and its web of well drawn, emotive characters” Goodreads
