The Librarian’s Cellar: spill simmer falter wither

Mistakenly assuming that it would be heavy-going, I was saving Sara Baume’s debut for a time when I felt I could give it the attention that such a thoughtful book deserves. However, having found that time, it turned out to be the fastest read I’ve enjoyed in a while. Sara’s visceral prose, alive and relentless, hooked me in through this dark and heartfelt journey of a motherless man; a grieving man, and a one-eyed dog. If you are a reader, you’ll be a better reader for having read it. If you are a writer, you’ll be a better one for having read it. If you haven’t read it, do it.
