Top 40 Book Club : December 2009
THE GIRL ON THE LANDING PAUL TORDAY For years Michael appears to be a very traditional, dependable and well-off husband to Elizabeth. However, his grip on reality starts to be questioned when he sees a woman that no-one else can see in the background of a painting. As the story unfolds and Michael shrugs off the effects of his schizophrenia medication, Elizabeth is drawn to a man she hardly knows. This clever, sometimes dark and sometimes almost comic story is written in Torday's engaging style and challenges preconceptions about what we know about ourselves and others.
