Month review

Really pleased with the start to the year. Hit the ground running although a scatter gun approach means all sorts of things have been read without much direction.

One of the highlights was reading another great JG Ballard in Rushing to paradise with all of the hallmarks of his work with strange obsessive end of worlders and the innocents dragged up and excited to be in their world.

it also included my first William Trevor. The Story of Lucy Gault was a story set in rural ireland that was as vivid as a film or picture. Tragic but done in a masterly way.

Hoping the rest of the year continues in this vein.
