Ann Packer's list

Ann Packer is the award-winning author of the 2002 best-seller The Dive From Clausen’s Pier. Her new novel, Songs Without Words, has just been published by Knopf.

She contributed "The List" to The Week magazine this week.

One title on Packer's list:

Genealogy by Maud Casey

A radiant novel about a teenage girl’s mental illness and the way it drives her family apart and then forces them back together. Each character is meticulously imagined, each of the relationships is sharply drawn, and by the end you are struck by Casey’s generosity and compassion.
