This book will win this year's Booker prize - cutting-edge fiction, fresh, poetic and current. Gunaratne talks about the sources of and connections between hate and fear, and while the story is set in modern-day London, its wisdom expands way beyond the city limits . #manbooker2018 #mbp2018 #finestfiction #indiebuddyreads

What a beautiful, atmospheric book! A soldier returns from WWII and tries to build a life for himself in LA. Although he finds new meaning in his work as a reporter, often covering social justice issues, his trauma and his disappointment with American society threaten to destroy him. The writing is highly poetic and pays tribute to film noir and jazz. #manbooker2018 #mbp2018 #indiebuddyreads #finestfiction
