Lloyd Jones' "Mr. Pip" - A Book recommendation





Go away to an island, a place of myth based on real. A fable story that has a "Little Prince" ability, a Murakami ability to get your imagination flowing but is also political without being big P political. I.e. Interesting, but still fiction story stunning. The magic that was the transporting reason you went to books as a kid. That kind of book. But for grownups.

  1. I might be using this novel as one of my primary texts in one of my thesis chapters!

  2. Great choice! It's a stunner of a novel, isn't it? And as I think you know Dickens hasn't yet grabbed me (sorry) but Mr. Pip made me want to try Great Expectations again.
