In the Fold by Rachel Cusk
Reviewed by Alexis Smith
"Of the novelists on the 2006 Man Booker Prize Longlist, several names stand out: Rushdie, Coetzee, McEwan, Ishiguro, [Zadie] Smith. Other names are likely less familiar to American readers (some of them haven't even been published in the States). One of the less familiar writers is, in my opinion, also one of the most grievously overlooked by American readers. Rachel Cusk (who was born in Canada and lived in Los Angeles as a child) won the Whitbread First Novel Award for her debut, Saving Agnes, and won the Somerset Maugham Award for the fantastic The Country Life."
