The Unsung Letter No 13

The latest Unsung Letter is now heading to subscribers, in this case on a book that’s just recently been awarded some accolades, lifting it into the spectrum of the heard-of. But it is still deserving of praise, argues Nicholas Hogg:

 

The novel feels as bracing as one of its North Sea waves because, in part, it’s refreshing to read a story that isn’t concerned with pleasing the reader. Characters are not rounded to fit a type, to be likeable, or have their travails in the world neatly understood so we close the book with a lesson learned.
