Book of the Month - The Given Day
In the last month I have been pretty much surgically attached to the Lisbeth Salander books. But I took a breather between 1 & 2 to read The Given Day by Dennis Lehane. Set in Boston just after WWI, it's an amazing historical novel that takes in race, class, baseball, unionisation and that old chestnut - redemption. That doesn't make it sound great, but it really is. Or at least I thought so.
