WINNER – MAN BOOKER 2017 – FULL REVIEW
Exit West astonishes me.
This is worth your time, find it, and read this great, great novel. I can’t wait to see what Ms. Culliton writes next.
I’m a third through an advance copy; the book is a gorgeous waltz.
Such Fine Boys might be a good place to introduce yourself to Nobel Prize winner, slippery Patrick Modiano. It seems to be a kind of reminiscence of his prep school days, a distinguished subgenre.
Throughout this novel, massive in its eloquence, time is bent like a Slinky toy.
Now that is Mr. Gilvarry. That’s what writers are supposed to do, transport you, and entertain.
You’d have to have a heart of stone not to love this novel. Three young women lounging in an ancient graveyard in the Yorkshire sticks that Gardam knows so well have all received good news.
Reading The Maids is like eavesdropping on an intimate Japanese conservation.
Javier Marais is fond of laying out all the possibilities: of what might have happened in the past, of what might be going on now, not in general, but line-per-line as the story unfolds.
