Read in 2020

  • Pereira Maintains by Antonio Tabucchi (Recommended.)
  • The Wall by John Lanchester
  • The Darkest of Nights by Charles Eric Maine (published by British Library)
  • Copenhagen by Michael Frayn (Didn’t do much with the very interesting subject matter. Fifty-six pages of rambling, ruminating postscripts could have been shortened to less than five. Disappointing.)
  • The Last Day by Andrew Hunter Murray
  • Furnace of This World by Ed Simon (abandoned halfway through — no new or interesting thoughts on the subject provided. Was drawn to it by the title, which is taken from the poem, by the brilliant Jack Gilbert, “A Brief for the Defense”)
  • Expiation by Elizabeth von Arnim (published by Persephone Books)
