Two quick book recommendations

Susan Hill’s The small hand is a lucid gem of a ghost story. I read it in a single sitting, although it must be admitted it is not long- it contains an unforgettable haunted garden and the best fictional description of the atmosphere to be found in a Cistercian monastery.

David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas lives up to all its hype. Sci-fi, detective story, historical pastiche, knock about comedy, in a cat’s cradle of invention. Eye ball glue.

  1. Maybe The Small Hand might be an option for Book Club? It sounds interesting and I think Susan Hill’s wrriting is great and very atmospheric. Glad you enjoyed Cloud Atlas, I read it a couple of years ago and felt like I could have read a full-length version of any of the individual strands of story – so clever, and really fascinating.
