June wrap-up

Book of the Month

Top of the pile this month was the second novel by a writer who is clearly going places. Jonathan Lee’s Joy is a great feat of of characterisation and voice which explores what drove a successful lawyer to commit suicide in a very public way, through the contrasting perspectives of herself and her colleague. It’s a book that brings to mind Rupture by Simon Lelic – in terms of quality as well as structure and subject.

  1. I thought Joy was brilliant. I’ve heard a lot about The Colour of Milk so I’ll have to get hold of it.

    I’ve heard a lot about The Colour of Milk so I’ll have to get hold of it.

    Definitely something I’d recommend doing!
