This week’s book haul

Just two books this week, but what books!

Firstly Deborah Levy‘s ‘The Man Who Saw Everything’. I LOVED her last novel, ‘Hot Milk’ and can’t wait to leap into this.

The second book is ‘Tastes of Honey‘ by Selina Todd, a look at the life and work of Shelagh Delaney and her impact on the post war cultural revolution. Delaney’s play ‘A Taste of Honey’ and the film from 1960 are firm favourites of mine and I fear that Delaney has often been overshadowed by more productive (and male) contemporaries. Hopefully this will help reset the balance. The fact that I am going to see a production of ‘A Taste of Honey’ in Delaney’s Salford only adds to the frisson of excitement…
