9780571228140: In the Fold

As a college student Michael visited Egypt Hill, the curiously named estate of his roommate+s family, for a garden party, and in one afternoon met a host of eccentric characters who have stayed with him ever since. Years later he decides a return to Egypt Hill would be an ideal sojourn-a place where he can escape the chaos at home that is destroying his marriage, his fashionably old townhouse, and possibly his worrisomely taciturn young son, Hamish.But now nothing in Egypt Hill is as it was, or at least how it once seemed. With Hamish in tow, Michael discovers the house teeming with age-old deceptions, broken confidences, and sordid alliances. At the heart of the turmoil is a lie so shameful, every Hanbury is responsible for its concealment. With his marriage crumbling in a series of telephone calls and his son growing more peculiar by the day, Michael is witness to the spectacular unraveling of a family-until a violent accident draws him, inexorably, into the fold.

From Publishers Weekly:

Real estate trumps true love in this often hilarious, British black comedy of manners and property values. After the second-story balcony of London lawyer Michael's townhouse crashes at his feet, nearly killing him, he decides to take a holiday to sort out his unhappy life. His wife, Rebecca, miserable with motherhood and marriage, is glad to see him and their introverted three-year-old, Hamish, hie off to the fine old country farm of Michael's university friend Adam Hansbury. But all is not well at Egypt, the oddly named Hansbury estate. Patriarch Paul is hospitalized, but no one visits him; his audacious ex-wife (Adam's mother) remains a frequent "guest" at her former home, where Paul's current wife doles out money, food and complaint to the malcontent step- and grandchildren who come and go. Even Adam is acting strangely. As the discord among the Hansburys escalates to violence and revenge, Michael becomes privy to a secret that unites the family where love and filial piety failed. Whitbread-winner Cusk (The Country Life, etc.) serves up crisp prose full of the unexpected pleasures of observation and metaphor, but this is a book about clever people behaving venally, and as such, the only person to really root for is poor silent Hamish.

From Booklist:

As a college student, Michael is invited by his roommate, Adam, to Adam's countryside estate in Egypt. Michael falls in love with the shabby gentility of the place and with Adam's tasteful family. Years later, with his marriage crumbling and his four-year-old son becoming stranger by the day, Michael reconnects with Adam. Adam invites Michael back to Egypt for lambing season, and Michael and his son eagerly go. Once there, though, Michael discovers that underneath their veneer of civility, Adam's family is a seething bed of resentment and anger. Michael and the reader both slowly realize that all is not as it seems in Egypt. Cusk does a mixed job of creating flawed characters. The neuroses of Adam's stepmother and Michael's wife are so believable one feels tense just reading the scenes. However, Michael's son makes unbelievable shifts between autistic-like behavior and normal communication. There is a little too much explanatory writing, including a late, unnecessary chapter in which Michael essentially recounts the whole book for a conveniently visiting friend of his wife's.
