'I will never forget the first time I read Someone at a Distance - the days passed in a blur as I was caught up in the visceral horror of Avery's betraying Ellen, the ruined innocence of a happy home and the awful inevitability of all the damage that would ensue. I couldn't get over the pointlessness of it - so much destruction just because dreadful, daft, dangerous Louise wanted to show off her catch at home in her French village, where she'd been rejected by a snob. Someone at a Distance is Whipple's powerful rejoinder to E.M. Forster's 'only connect'.'
