Jon McGregor’s next book will very probably be on my “buy instantly in hardback the second it comes out” list.

I loved this - it took me a while to get with the flow of the language as it’s written in a very poetic style and it can be hard to grasp what’s going on. Except that is kind of the point. The only book in ages that I’ve immediately flipped back and started at page one again after reaching the last page. I didn’t read it all again, and I don’t think I entirely figured out the story - but it was magical all the same.
