Pathogens are embedded in a complex network of microparasites that can collectively or individually alter disease dynamics and outcomes. Endemic pathogens that infect an individual in the first years of life, for example, can either facilitate or compete with subsequent pathogens thereby exacerbating or ameliorating morbidity and mortality.
Pathogen associations are ubiquitous but poorly understood, particularly in wild populations. We combine network and community ecology approaches to assess broad network structure and characterise associations between pathogens across spatial and temporal scales.

And Dunmore, as we have come to expect from novels like The Siege , handles her plot elements with great skill, bringing everything together into an exciting climax and appropriate resolution. I have now read and reviewed it, and discovered that indeed Dunmore has taken the entire narrative frame from Nesbit, though shifting her focus to the causes of the father's arrest. I also discovered that, so far from being merely an interesting footnote to this recent book, Nesbit's classic remains a masterpiece, as enjoyable now as it surely was years ago.

Nov 17, Cold War Conversations Podcast rated it really liked it Shelves: espionage , fiction , cold-war , uk. Another great novel from Helen Dunmore. Exposure is set at the heart of the Cold War in November, Simon and Lily Carrington live in North London. Simon works at the Admiralty, keeps his head down and has a relatively ordinary life.
However, this is turned upside down when he is accused of espionage. In addition the sinister and menacing pair of Giles Holloway and Julian Clowdes add a gripping layer of psychological drama to the whole proceedings. An excellent gripping novel with great attention to period detail too. I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. This is a book about secrets and lies and, ultimately, forgiveness.
It is a book that is raw with fear and it vibrates with Lily's overwhelming need to protect her children and keep them safe from harm. Exposure falls within the spy novel genre but this book is not for those who like their action fast and furious. Instead, Dunmore takes her reader deep inside her characters and lays bare their innermost thoughts and fears. I loved being inside year-old Paul's head as he sat his trial eleven-p This is a book about secrets and lies and, ultimately, forgiveness.
I loved being inside year-old Paul's head as he sat his trial eleven-plus and felt his horror and frustration when he realised he had missed a question. Oh, I have been there, and also fought to fight back the tears as the realisation hit me. This is a post-war Britain of fogs, spitting gas fires, dirty coal, the twin-tub, clothes-mangling washing machine, weak yellow light-bulbs, Birds Eye custard powder and endless jars of plum jam. And there is a very sinister plot that builds slowly, with wonderful tension and kept me listening until late at night. I really enjoyed this, and I will look forward to reading more of Helen Dunmore's elegant prose.

Simon works for the Admiralty. Lily works as a part-time teacher. Simon gets into trouble and is accused of espionage, all this mess self-induced after retrieving a file from Giles' house, an old friend and colleague.
As Simon's predicament makes the news, Lily and the kids have to deal with the aftermath. Not an easy situation to cope w This has been my first Helen Dunmore novel. Not an easy situation to cope with. Will Simon be punished for something he didn't do? Conspiracy and manipulation are strong forces that work to put Simon away and cover the real guilty parts.
The fact that Simon has a big secret that he wants to be kept from Lily and the kids makes things even more complicated. Dunmore is a very clever writer who has weaved a compelling story of espionage in s UK. But Exposure is so much more than that. To a great extent, Exposure is a character study of people facing unusual and unexpected situations. The espionage aspects were accessible as they weren't too crazy messy. I was expecting a spy thriller, though, so found the book fairly, er, un-thrilling for much of its length. Giles Holloway, a double agent for the Russians, falls down the stairs of his flat and winds up in hospital.
Dunmore does well to elicit sympathy for Giles, Simon, and Lily and the children all at the same time, and creates a delicious villain in Julian Clowde.

What a wonderful writer Helen Dunmore was. Dunmore expertly manages multiple points-of-view and even made unlikeable characters sympathetic. The baddies are a bit stereotypical but perhaps rooted in real life and her heroine is a bit too good but perhaps that makes us underestimate her.
The story ends as it has done throughout lea What a wonderful writer Helen Dunmore was. The story ends as it has done throughout leaving something to the imagination - but not too much. Cold War espionage So he turns to his old friend and colleague Simon Callington for help. But Giles is under observation and someone sees Simon collecting the file. And so Simon is sucked into a situation that threatens to destroy everything he holds dear. It's almost impossible to write a Cold War espionage It's almost impossible to write a short summary of this one that doesn't make it sound as if it's a spy thriller, and in many ways it is.
But mostly what it is is a set of brilliant character studies showing the impact of this event on the lives of all those involved. It's also a highly intelligent twist on The Railway Children — a book the author herself references in the text, so the connections are clearly intentional — where we see the story from the adults' side.
And it's an entirely credible portrayal of a fictionalised version of the Cambridge spy ring and its association with homosexuality, at that period of the s and early '60s still a crime, and enough to destroy a man's career and even life, if exposed. The writing is excellent, quickly building up a tense atmosphere of secrecy and suspicion. The book is written in third person, allowing the reader to get inside the head of each of the major characters in turn.
Cold War spy fiction is usually an almost entirely male preserve with the exception of the occasional sexy femme fatale and the Cambridge spy ring has been examined many times in fiction and fact, so to a degree Simon's and Giles' stories are familiar territory, though rarely in my experience told with such exceptional depth and credibility of character.

But what really makes this book stand out from the crowd is the inclusion of Simon's wife and family. Lily is intelligent and loving, never once doubting her husband's innocence and fiercely protective of her children.
But her childhood was filled with experiences that give her particular cause to fear and distrust the shady world of intelligence and security — a past she now fears may come back to damage Simon and the children. Dunmore brilliantly shows how Lily's early experiences are both her weakness and her strength when she must start making decisions for her family. Peter is the eldest son but still only a boy on the cusp of his teen years when the story begins. With his sister, at first his head is full of adventure stories, such as the aforementioned Railway Children, where somehow the children will find a clue that will save their father, or be able to survive on their own if, as they fear, both their parents are arrested.
Dunmore again gives a superb portrayal of Peter suddenly being forced to grow up before his time and take on some of the responsibilities of the man of the family. Lily finds herself reluctantly leaning on her son's strength, but simultaneously regretting that he is now losing his childhood too early, as she herself had done.
