Ordinary People is a brilliant novel by Diana Evans. The title is essentially the plot; this book is about ordinary people who live ordinary lives, but it couldn’t be further from ordinary. Evans’ skill is second to none: her creation, development and articulation of the four characters is riveting.
Plot light and character rich, the book follows a short period in the lives of Melissa and Micheal and Damian and Stephanie, who live in London and Sussex respectively. Two couples, with children; one couple married, one not; sometimes friends, sometimes not; sometimes in love, sometimes not. The detail and intricacy with which Evans depicts their ‘ordinary’ lives is addictive, compelling and moving. It is an exploration into relationships, love, parenting and intimacy in the modern world where being a team is hard and being alone is harder ❤️📚 @vintagebooks
