Product description

Review

A small masterpiece, much to be recommended ― Daily Telegraph

Blackburn has written an exceptionally perceptive and fascinating book, a tribute by a remarkable daughter to the resilience of filial love ― Sunday Telegraph

A stunningly written memoir ― Sunday Times

The Three of Us contains all the mental and physical violations that cling to the bare bones of their shared past... Blackburn was never afraid of her father. It's very clear in the book - he is described even at his blackest moments with affection and warmth ― Guardian

Blackburn's first 16 years sound quite frankly too bad to be true. Nightmarish infact - though she details them in such an ingenuous, matter-of-fact manner that she somehow manages to make terrible events seem almost funny.... the resulting memoir is mesmerising and brilliant ― Daily Mail

About the Author

Julia Blackburn has written five books of non-fiction, Charles Waterton, The Emperor's Last Island, Daisy Bates in the Desert, Old Man Goya and With Billie, and two novels, The Book of Colour and The Leper's Companions, both of which were shortlisted for the Orange Prize.
