Hangover Square

By Patrick Hamilton.
I really enjoyed this novel. I thought it was very strong and there was some unusual elements structurally. Quite a melancholy end but you were not really aware it was going to end in such a way by reading. Hamilton is thought of as a ‘minor’ writer and I am not sure why – the story and characters were really very powerful and not dated at all. Very impressed. I will definitely be reading more. By far the best English writer I have read for a long time.
