BOOK REVIEW: You’ll Enjoy It When You Get There: The Stories of Elizabeth Taylor, with an introduction by Margaret Drabble — March 2019
Jane highly recommends reading not only this book, but all of the other books written by Elizabeth Taylor, the novelist.
Love and Fatigue in America is a story of how a British man (the author) comes to teach in the US and develops ME/cfs (Chronic fatigue syndrome)…. He shares his knowledge of coping with his readers.
The plots keep you turning the pages, always wanting more, in the manner of high-level genre fiction by writers like John Grisham and Michael Connelly. When I re-read them, the stories were just as good the second time around. So why don’t I like them better?
“It’s hard to believe that this is a first novel, the writing is so assured, fluid, and well-paced.”
The Keeper of Lost Things seems at first, to be hopelessly whimsical but turns out to contain enough tragedy, bad luck and unjust circumstances for ar least three novels, and to fashion imaginative resolutions for several damaged lives.
