Uffz. I loved ‘White Teeth’. And I couldn’t connect to this one, not even for a tiny bit. I jumped over about 150pages of Zadie Smith’s ‘NW’ and then it briefly got better (format, mixed stories) but all in all not a fav.
And where did all the praise come from?
What an enjoyable read about an ageing, mean and sharp feminist intellectual and her family, named ‘Florence Gordon’, written by Brian Morton.
Today, before even finishing it I’ve already seconded a film critics view on this book: https://twitter.com/juninaro/status/521431731124318208
