No one usually gets two mentions on my blog, but just finished Alison McLeod’s latest novel all about Brighton in the second world war. It certainly lived up to expectations.
I wrote a review la couple of weeks ago after hearing her talk at the Hatchery in Hove – an extract below
‘We learn the story is about the nature of fear and it’s many manifestations at times of crisis. There are growing tensions in the marriage of Evelyn her main character who is bored and listless despite having a son. She finds solace in reading, particularly Virginia Woolf.’ there was all this and so much more.
‘An award winning blog for ‘a blog that brightens our day’.
