Best of 2019

Liz Mc Skeane’s novel,  Canticle, was my most compelling read of  2019. It immersed me in the struggle between creativity, research and corrupt institutions. Set in Madrid in 1616, in the shadow of the Inquisition,  Canticle (Turas Press ISBN 978-0-9957916-3-3) has searing insights into the abuse of power and the manipulation of truth to serve the interests of an elite. Both historical and timely.
