I recently finished reading Bright, Precious Days by Jay McInerney, which The New Yorker describes as a ‘portrait of middle-aged malaise’. Now I’m on to Matt Haigh’s How to Stop Time. I was lucky enough to be given a signed copy! Next up is Everyone Brave is Forgiven by Chris Cleave, set in the Second World War and based on the experience of his grandparents. I have wanted to read it since I heard an interview by Kate Evans with the author on ABC radio. You can listen to it here.
