Sarah Moss’ microcosm of modern Britain captures the simmering sense of political unease across a cross-section of society. As her characters take turns to share Moss’ spotlight, each of their anxieties about the country’s future are  given context and compassion: it is a sensitive and three-dimensional portrait of a nation on the edge, brimming with tension.”
