October Book Choices:
'Milkman' by Anna Burns
Publisher: Faber & Faber
Shortlisted for this year’s Man Booker prize, this is a story set in Belfast during the Troubles. A young woman falls under the influence of a sinister, older man. But it’s not a book about the Troubles – it’s an examination of the oppressive forces of tribalism, of religion, of living in fear.
(Reviewed by Sharon Dempsey 16.10.18)
'Transcription' by Kate Atkinson
This is the story of Juliet, who’s employed by MI5 in 1940 to transcribe the bugged conversations of a group of fascist sympathisers. Ten years later, Juliet is working as a producer for the BBC when the past comes back to haunt her.
(Reviewed by Esther Haller-Clarke 23.10.18)
