If nobody speaks of remarkable things

I need a “book review” category! This, the first book from Jon McGregor, is a brilliant story! Most of the way through it I wondered why I bought it, as it’s about the mundane lives of the people living in a street of flats in some city in the UK. There must be some dozen characters there, from the old couple who walk to the bus, to the twins playing cricket, to the main character whose life we follow throughout. I guess that’s what attracts so many people to Soaps – everyday life.
The remarkable thing? I’ll leave that up to you to find out. It’s a good yarn, and cleverly mixes the past with the present. This Google Search will lead you to more about this book.
