Description

Author and art critic Laura Cumming explores the mystery of her mother’s disappearance from a Lincolnshire beach in 1929. Cumming grew up enthralled by her mother’s strange tales of life in a seaside hamlet of the 1930s, and of the secrets and lies perpetuated by a whole community.

Humble objects light up the story: a pie dish, a carved box, an old Vick’s jar. Letters, tickets, recipe books, even the slant of a copperplate hand give vital clues. Pictures of all kinds, from paintings to photographs, open up like doors to the truth.
