Book Review: By the Sea by Abdulrazak Gurnah

By the Sea

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.
