Petina Gappah's An Elegy for Easterly has received its first full review on Guardian, by Tom Fleming. Tom is very excited and promises that the collection will not disappoint. Here are his words:
"More and more I have come to admire resilience," begins the epigraph, a poem by Jane Hirshfield. Yet sometimes laughter is the only form of resilience Petina Gappah's characters can manage, and it is the frequent humour in these stories that makes them remarkable, even if their outcomes can be tragic. Often satirical, occasionally lyrical, they are a delight."
I look forward to having m own copy on my table soon. Here is the whole review, by the way. ENJOY!
