The 2001 novel tells the story of a 13-year-old girl who witnesses a crime in 1935 and whose actions irrevocably change her life, as well as those of her sister and the son of the family's housekeeper. It won the 2001 Booker Prize for fiction and the 2002 National Book Critics Circle Award for fiction.
The highlights of 'In Silver Halides' are the silky-smooth melodies and Deakin’s hushed velvety voice. This is an album rife with beautiful, soft music tip-toeing between orchestral prog rock and buttery acoustic/classicism. 'In Silver Halides' projects lush excellence.
