By the Sea by Abdulrazak Gurnah
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Why had I not read Abdulrazak Gurnah before!
He writes beautifully. His prose is like a luxuriant duvet of baroque damask - rich, poetic, precise and the reader experiences the sublime warmth of a writer who tends to his every word. He leads the reader on a journey of character discovery, of plot illumination. Just gorgeous.
4* only in expectation that he might have written an even better one. I will definitely be reading more.
