With dark poetry and domestic acuity, the author of Homework shows how families pull together, form themselves anew, and occasionally fly apart at the seams. Ranging from Scotland to America to Italy--and to a novel-within-a-novel--Criminals brilliantly captures the stories of complicated, sympathetic people who try to do right but turn somehow wrong.

A decent London banker, his quite mad sister, an inadvertently abandoned baby, a distraught young mother and her mindless low-life mate come together in a bleak North England rural setting. This is an often gripping drama of love, longing and desperation.
