I really enjoyed seeing Jill Dawson discuss this novel at the Cambridge Literature Festival and I’ll definitely be reading more of her back catalogue as well as looking out for future novels.
Thanks to Amazon Vine for the review copy.
‘The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - which you had thought special and particular to you. And now, here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out, and taken yours.’ Alan Bennett
“Many a book is like a key to unknown chambers within the castle of one’s own self.” ― Franz Kafka
