Warm funny story told from four perspectives of the lives of for women associated with a serially abusive Irish politician. THe use of different type faces to emphasise the distinction between the narrators is cute but effective. One of the voices uses an increasingly curtailed style with no pronouns, which becomes irksome towards the end. The gentle mockery of the characters and several small running jokes softens the ferocity of the domestic violence and the despair of alcohoicism that are core themes.
