Jane Harris’s second novel is narrated by a spinster, the elderly Harriet Baxter, and concerns her relationship with a Glaswegian artist, Gillespie, and his family. Like The Observations before it, Gillespie and I presents a disorienting view of a household in which not everything is as it first appears.
