Book review: The Tidal Zone by Sarah Moss

The subject of motherhood has preoccupied much of Moss’s career as a novelist. In Night Waking an academic is torn between her work and her family; while the late 19th-century-set Bodies of Light, and it’s sequel, Signs for Lost Children, examine the debilitating long-term effects of a toxic mother-daughter relationship. By comparison, Moss’s new novel, The Tidal Zone, is marked by a change of perspective: that of a stay-at-home father.
