If you haven’t read this book ask yourself why? this will challenge all your preconceptions of how long a book needs to be, at over 1000 pages its not one for the tube or the beach, but leisurely days at home on the sofa . Perfect autumn reading that surprises you with its humour, wit and depth of understanding of how we function as humans . How we go on, ‘the fact that…’ we do.
