Details

One-year-old Iris is deaf. Her parents, Ben and Maggie, are devastated. So are their close friends Isobel and Eric.

Isobel knows that her decision, taken years ago, not to have her own children vaccinated against measles is to blame for Iris’s deafness. And Ben knows this too. To make matters worse, Isobel is the woman he fell in love with in his twenties – the woman who married his best friend. As he and Maggie start legal proceedings, Isobel’s world begins to unravel.

"Lizzie Enfield is a writer with a gift for conveying the intricacies and subtleties of relationships between family and friends. Her dialogue is perfectly pitched, and her storytelling thought-provoking and nuanced. Living With It explores an emotive issue with insight and care." - Sarah Rayner

"This book feels more polished and assured than her last. The milieu is typical Enfield - trendy middle-class Brighton families - but this time, rather than mere affairs of the heart, she tackles a social issue: the MMR scandal. Enfield paints a very believable picture of contemporary family life as the fallout causes rifts between husbands and wives, parents and children, and sends shock waves right through their extended circle." - Sussex Life
