by Rebecca Solnit
Curiously haunting memoir.
I have read good things about Rebecca Solnit, but wasn't at all sure what to expect from The Faraway Nearby. In many ways, my confused expectations were fully realised: I'm not at all sure what to make of this memoir, although I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. It's a highly unusual book, which left a curiously haunting, almost dreamlike impression. As you will have gathered, I'm struggling to describe it. So why don't I stop trying?
But, yes, very good. I shall certainly read more of Solnit's work.
