Clare Menges is the twenty-nine-year-old suburban mother of three, but her comfortable world is disrupted when her best friend's lover appears in her life. Anyway Clare's perfect life was never what it seemed; the world of her family is a complicated and fraught web of marriages and divorces, half-siblings and stepchildren, broken homes and homes reassembled. As Clare's relationships begin to unravel, she notices her life repeating the patterns of those around her. Tessa Hadley constructs a beautifully fashioned and intimate portrait of family life in our times.

Tessa Hadley lives in Cardiff, Wales, and teaches literature at Bath Spa University College. Accidents in the Home is her first novel.

Editorial Reviews

[A] captivating first novel, but the thrill of this tale lies in her distinctive characters--their fleeting elation and cleverly plotted contradictions, and the repercussions of their actions.
