feedback for The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

Please see attached feedback for The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce. (NB – there are no meetings in July.)

We’re discussing Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter by Tom Franklin in August.

2013-08-Crooked-letterTom Franklin’s extraordinary talent has been hailed by some leading lights of contemporary literature — Philip Roth, Richard Ford, Lee Smith, and Dennis Lehane. Reviewers have called his fiction ingenious (USA Today) and compulsively readable (Memphis Commercial Appeal). His narrative power and flair for characterisation have been compared to the likes of Harper Lee, Flannery O’Connor, Elmore Leonard, and Cormac McCarthy.

In this story of race and youth, of tragedies that time alone cannot heal, and the ways we still need each other even when it seems too late, Franklin beautifully captures human relationships in both their simplicity and unutterable complexities. An unusual American literary thriller.

2013-09-Hand-me-down-worldIn September we’ll be discussing Hand Me Down World by Lloyd Jones.

 

Hoping everyone has a lovely Summer. Looking forward to more great discussions in August.

 

All best,

Jan
