Instructions for a Heatwave

This week Ms Kane recommends ‘Instructions for a Heatwave’ by Maggie O’Farrell.

O’Farrell’s sixth award winning book, Instructions for a Heatwave, is a literary delight which delves into the world of family dynamics and relationships.

Set during a heatwave in London in 1976, the book takes a seemingly normal family and peeks behind the scenes.

It is particularly interesting that the book is written in sections of different family member’s perspectives – so this is a good book for learning to put yourselves in someone else’s shoes.
