Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction Best Book (nominee)
A tragic event at her summer day camp changes eight-year-old Pearl's life forever and brings her closer to two strangers - Sonia, who is learning to live alone in the suburbs without her husband; and Adam, a young sculptor whose art tries to make sense of mortality. Timely in its references to the post-9/11 world and moving in its restrained exploration of the ways we struggle with grief and try to memorialize the dead, Careless will resonate with readers everywhere as a story about contemporary violence, family, and human connection.
