I loved Harvey's The Wilderness and this is a similarly slow, patient build-up through the loss of a parent, although here it's to something more controversial, as the rather rootless and more cautious Leonard finds his brother William is involved in a kind of fundamentalist terrorism. Lovely observations on a sibling relationship.
