Long day of #COVID decisions, so now a bit of Sat night 📚 chat to clear my head. ‘Rodham’ by @csittenfeld was everything I hoped for - excellent. Now reading the new @valmcdermid (thanks to the Queen of Crime herself for early proof) - it’s predictably magnificent so far. https://t.co/1Aq16F4IRd

The Wren, the Wren

Anne Enright

Enright at her lyrical, storytelling best. A portrait of a family living with the legacy, years after his death, of the abuse and neglect of their patriarch – a famous Irish poet... It’s a story of relationships, trauma, self-discovery and the healing powers of art and nature.

The effect is to make the reader feel that Hilary Mantel is with us still, communicating from beyond the grave – and that we may now be seeing something that has hitherto been hidden.

A couple of recommendations for #BookLoversDay. I’ve recently finished The Nickel Boys by @colsonwhitehead - a searingly powerful story about the impact of racism and abuse. And next, in memory of the great Toni Morrison, I’ll be rereading her wonderful classic The Bluest Eye. https://t.co/Ppt091YeAK
