Books - Review

The Cement GardenA family living in a seedy derelict part of London, with an obsessive father and depressed mother. He dies, leaving the kids to look after their mostly bedridden mum. Then she dies too, and they bury her in concrete in a trunk in the cellar, so that they don't get taken into care. After that it gets weirder, with a bit of incest and cross-dressing.

All a bit peculiar, but kinda interesting.
