Description London in the aftermath of WW2 is a beaten down, hungry place, so it's no wonder that Regine Milner's Sunday house parties are so popular. Everyone comes to Reggie's on a Sunday: ballet dancers and cabinet ministers, alongside homosexuals like Freddie. And when Freddie turns up dead on the Heath one Sunday night there is no shortage of suspects.
Alif the Unseen - Staff Choice by Sophie Jinns, hacker genius, mirages, torture, people's revolt... I loved this story that wonderfully mixes modern-day life in an unnamed Muslim state with some great tech concepts and a fantasy world that runs parallel to ours. It made me aware of how coccooned my world is, over here in Western Europe. It also made me aware how few mainstream stories feature "regular" Muslims (as opposed to stereotypical Muslim villains and extremists) I know of. Wilson fills her book with lots of pearls of wisdom, casually strewn throughout. I'll think back on Dina and Alif and Vikram and the others often, I'm sure.
