Having been busy doing lots of other things, I have not done much blogging of late. One of the things was reading Jim Crace’s latest book, Harvest, which is an absolute masterpiece. He calls it his last book and I would not envy him trying to follow it with another. I heard one radio contributor describe it as faultless. I have quoted a paragraph in the ‘Archives in Fiction’ section (item number 6 in the drop down menue). But I urge everyone who is at all interested in history as it relates to the ‘poorer sort’ to read it. It beats every other pseudo-Tudor offering into absolute fits.
