I’ve really enjoyed rewinding through my reading over the past five years. Here’s the last instalment (acknowledging that there’s a chance I’ll have to change the 2017 choice, depending on what I read in the next seven days) –
2012: Foal’s Bread by Gillian Mears – contains one of the most memorable scenes I’ve ever read.
2013: What Nora Knew by Linda Yellin – chick-lit at its best.
2014: All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr – exquisite.
2015: Avenue of Mysteries by John Irving – packed with Irving hallmarks.
2016: The Gravity of Love by Sara Stridsberg – unsettling (but beautifully written).
2017: So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed by Jon Ronson – terrifying in its own way.
