  1. I just finished The Friend by the great Sigrid Nunez. Utterly blown away. I gobbled delicious literary references which are scattered throughout the novel like bon mots that I read over and over and underlined and underlined. I cried and laughed. This wonderful, unconventionally structured novel may be my favourite of 2018. Nunez, right up there with Paula Fox.
