Homes A. M.

May we be forgiven

Granta, London 2012


Homes`great novel “This book will save your life” still in mind, I was really glad when I came across this book. But the more I read the more disillusioned I became. The main character Harry is just a more tragical edition of the reluctant hero in “This book will save your life”. Again fiftiish, divorced, out of work, but living on his brother George´s wealth, after  George was sent into a mental hospital. It is a Lazarus - Hiob -story, and just not endurable.
