Four aeroplane crashes at the same minute. A book within the book: a tell-all collection of essays and interviews. Compelling, as all of these books are, making the reader feel dirty. Eavesdropping. Watching reality television. Lotz weaves strands of dread into this narrative with care, until the tapestry of the story resonates with multiple levels of fear. The slow slow build pays off with a jackhammer at the end. From Chiselhurst in middle England to rural Texas to Khayetlitsha in Cape Town, every character reads as real, their voices effortless and clear and resonating correctly. A stunning piece of work.
