New fiction: The Museum of You

Eithne Farry reviews Carys Bray's second novel


New fiction: The Museum of You

There’s a gap in Clover Quinn’s life, and it’s mother-shaped.

Dad Darren loves her, but he’s grief-stricken at the loss of Becky, who died when Clover was a baby.

Curious to learn more about her mum, Clover goes though the bags of Becky’s belongings in the spare bedroom and makes a museum designed to fill in the missing pieces of the story, learning more than she bargained for.

It’s a beautifully written tale of loss, love and handwritten exhibition labels.

The Museum Of You by Carys Bray (Hutchinson, £12.99) is out now.
