Staff Review: Arms and Legs

Arms and Legs
by Chloe Lane
Review by Ray

This is a fascinating and tightly-controlled story about domestic life, tragedy, and things slowly spiralling out of control. Set in Florida, where the environment is almost a character in of itself, the story follows Georgie, a New Zealander who has moved with her husband and child to the USA. She navigates parenthood, marriage, and an unexpected, horrible discovery with insight, humour, and curiosity, even as life becomes messy and chaotic. Tense, wild, and totally compelling.
