Description

Daniel Jarrett (previously Hardesty) narrates the story in reflection, starting in 1995 as he is due to leave on a road trip with his estranged father, Francis (Fran) Hardesty. because the writing was good, the lack of the other 3 because it was like trying to walk through treacle, a sad slightly pointless plot, unlikeable characters. Benjamin is Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing at King's College London, where he founded the PhD in Creative Writing programme and teaches undergraduate fiction modules.

Daniel is obsessed with the TV series, and it is only because of her son’s fixation with anything Artifex, that his mother, Kath, allows Fran to take Daniel on this trip to see the film-set and meet the actors.What can possibly go wrong when you dad shows up promising to take you on a trip to the set of the TV series he's working on? Slowly, the author reveals the relationship between the characters and unveils the father's erratic, unreliable and unpredictable personality. There is something about reading about crime or drama through the eyes of a child that makes it more terrifying and more unsettling.

As always, Wood has delivered a book that is utterly compelling and hard to put down, well written and easy to read. I understood that he had finished being my father, as he had finished being a husband, and a stage carpenter, and painter-decorator, and a council maintenance worker, and a labourer, and a tomato picker, and a student, and a sheep farmer, and a son.

Wood’s third novel is a gripping work, his chilling creation Francis Hardesty leaving an indelible mark. The last third is somewhat of a let down after all the tension that the author has achieved and the passages from the Artifex show are overdone, adding nothing at all. Tony and Susan: путешествие с папой, которое так неплохо начиналось и сулило двенадцатилетнему герою множество радостных событий, превращается в золотую жилу для психотерапевтов.
