When art historian Max Morden returns to the seaside village where he once spent a childhood holiday, he is both escaping from a recent loss and confronting a distant trauma.
The Grace family had appeared that long-ago summer as if from another world. Mr. and Mrs. Grace, with their worldly ease and candour, were unlike any adults he had met before. But it was his contemporaries, the Grace twins Myles and Chloe, who most fascinated Max. He grew to know them intricately, even intimately, and what ensued would haunt him for the rest of his years and shape everything that was to follow.

Dull and self-indulgent
The main point of this book appears to be adolescent self-absorption and it's as tedious to listen to as it is to observe in real life. The male characters are one-dimensional, the female characters are objects. A dash of humour or irony may have lifted the narrative, but this story takes itself extremely seriously. I struggled to the end only because I hoped it would redeem itself in the finale. It didn't.
