Milkman, by Anna Burns ( paperback 2019)


Longlisted for the 2018 Booker Prize.

Anna Burns is originally from Belfast but is now based in England.

Milkman is “ a story of hearsay, silence and deliberate deafness. It is the story of inaction with enormous consequences “

Powerful, stream of consciousness prose that feels exhausting but gets under your skin as an astute account of Northern Ireland’s social landscape, and ultimately delivers humour, and insight -it's quite brilliant.
