In the Fold by Rachel Cusk
In the Fold revolves around Michael, who became friends with Adam Hanbury while at university. He was invited to the Hanbury home, a cliffside farm called Egypt, to celebrate the 18th birthday of Adam's sister, Caris. Michael is captivated by Caris and the rest of the bohemian family. Years later, he's an unhappily married lawyer living in Bath with his self-obsessed and overanalytical wife and a three-year old son who refuses to speak, while also suffering rich, arty, and intrusive in-laws. When he's nearly killed by a falling balcony at his house, he searches out Adam who lives nearby and is invited back to Egypt to help with the lambing. Michael takes his son with him, expecting to find the happy bohemian memories of his youth, but finds a world not much different from the one he wants to escape. In the Fold has received mixed reviews with the Telegraph saying, "In the Fold is a delicate but insidious novel, that will leave you musing on your own choices long after the read is over. Above all, it is a novel that reminds us, as Michael realises on his return from Egypt, '. . . how hard it is, and yet how necessary, to love'."
