Our Little Cruelties by Liz Nugent

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The cruelties of families- the differences that parents make between siblings, the way siblings treat each other. ‘Our Little Cruelties’ shows with clarity how these acts of unkindness don’t disappear when childhood is left behind, but are carried through to adulthood with devastating consequences. Even more devastating is the way they spill over into the next generation and continue to ruin lives. Liz Nugent’s narrative is both fascinating and horrifying- difficult not to feel disgusted by the whole damn family. Loved it.
