Blindsight by Maurice Gee

Description: Alice Ferry lives in Wellington, and keeps an eye on her brother, though he doesn’t know it. Alice as narrator begins telling us the story from their childhood, but there are things she’s hiding.

When a young man shows up on her doorstep, claiming to be her brother Gordon’s grandson, things get complicated.

Opening: Father taught us how not to love.

The back blurb from The Times gives out that this is ‘Wellington Noir’.

Interesting that Gee uses Marmite rather than Vegemite (page 8).

Two Gee’s under the belt and both hearty four stars. I loved this subversive read in snippets over night.
