LOVED this book! Lyrical writing style was a pleasure to read, with lots of beautiful sentences, and different voices in each section. The whimsical, folkish, magical-realism thing sat well with me, suggesting a dream/fairy tale rather than the usual cold facts of real life. Only fault was reference to plastic items; I thought it wasnt invented /in common use until after the war?
'When God was a rabbit', was a good happy find at one of those community swap and share 'book boxes' on a roadside, and drew me to look for more, but 'Marvellous' was a gem. Will definitely read again.
