Tremain’s novels, consistently nominated for the Man Booker
Prize, are all excellent and always surprising.
Trespass, her newest, is a dark, suspenseful, tale of two sibling pairs,
their parents, and a handful of others who occupy their universe. It’s
disturbing but rewardingly complex and provocative, leaving the reader to
ponder fascinating parallels and contradictions and to consider intriguing
questions of nature and artifice.
