Yuki chan in Brontë Country by Mick Jackson review - frustrating amateur detective story

Sunday 17th January 2016


Mick Jackson’s last novel, The Widow’s Tale, was narrated by an unnamed woman propelled by bereavement into self-imposed exile in an unfamiliar corner of England. His new book, Yuki chan in Brontë Country, revisits this theme from a different perspective. Yukiko is a Japanese fashion student recently arrived in London to visit her sister, but behind her tourist disguise she hides a bigger purpose. “This whole trip is, in fact, one super-big investigation.” Yuki imagines herself as a psychic detective, and her investigation-cum-pilgrimage is all to try and discover what happened to her mother 10 years earlier in Haworth, home of the Brontës, shortly before she died.
