‘Thunderstruck’ by Elizabeth McCracken

Fundamentally a story about loss and trying to hold on to something. After their daughter is bought home by police her parents decide to take their children to Paris for the summer to keep them away from danger. Best laid plans etc. Absolutely stunning writing.

From Thunderstruck and Other Stories, Jonathan Cape, 2014
