The Bradshaw Variations by Rachel Cusk
Narrated by Juanita McMahon
A powerful novel about how our choices and our loves and the family life we build will always be an echo – a variation – of a theme played out in our own childhood.
Since leaving his job to look after Alexa, his eight year old daughter, Thomas Bradshaw has found the structure of his daily piano practice and the study of musical form brings a nourishment to these difficult middle years. His pursuit of a more artistic way of life shocks and irritates his parents and his in-laws. Why has he swapped roles with Tonie Swann, his intense, intellectual wife who has accepted a demanding full-time University job? How can this be good for Alexa and for the family as a whole?
‘I enjoyed everything about this dazzling performance of a book […] which wants to know the truth about love, especially middle-aged, married love.’ OBSERVER
