Ordinary People by Diana Evans
Ordinary People is Diana Evans’ first novel in 10 years, following 2009’s The Wonder and her Orange Award for New Writers-winning debut 26a. Set in 2008, the book stars two South London couples throughout a year of marital crisis. The New Yorker named Ordinary People as one of the best books of the year, explaining that “the book achieves a moody, velvety atmosphere, as though events were unfolding under amber-tinted bulbs. Bracketed by Barack Obama’s electoral victory and Michael Jackson’s overdose, Ordinary People also offers a precise sketch of the British black middle class, with a daring fifth-act twist.”
