Summary
Trudy has betrayed her husband, John. She is still in the marital home, a dilapidated, priceless London townhouse but not with John. Instead, she is with his brother, the profoundly banal Claude, and the two of them have a plan. But there is a witness to their plot: the inquisitive, nine-month-old resident of Trudy's womb. Told from a perspective unlike any other, Nutshell is a classic tale of murder and deceit from one of the world's master storytellers
Summary
