Edinburgh-based writer and journalist Lee Randall wrote a lovely review of The Life and Loves of Lena Gaunt on her Randall Writes / A History of my Life in 100 Objects blog early in the new year. Lena is the third of three novels Lee reviews in the post Book Reviews: Three for January.
Farr’s exploring whether or not we can reproduce experience and capture the world whether in words, sounds, or images. On the basis of this skilful debut, the answer is a resounding “Yes.” For all its etherealness, the novel is solid, and substantial. I predict it will find a legion of fans.
