Sisters - raised by a non-interested, inattentive mother. Sisters who are so different in spirit and in kind, in interests and endeavours, yet they are there for one another in the strangest ways. I liked the amount of fascinating information the author included about classical music and film making. I imagine that may have taken a reasonable amount of research and yet it's included so simply in this story that it never interferes with the flow. I want to say I enjoyed this book but I'm not precisely sure why. The best I can say is to offer the author's words : 'If you juxtapose two images...no matter how different, the viewer will make meaning from the montage.'
