Reading

I’ve so enjoyed reading The Delivery Room by Sylvia Brownrigg.  The title refers to the nickname given to the consulting room of a psychotherapist.  Hard to sum up and I don’t want to pre-empt the enjoyment of anyone who decides to read it.   But it deals with love, grief, parent-child relationships, motherhood and is set at the time of the war in the former Yugoslavia.   Not a cheery little summer read then?  Well no, but the seriousness is handled by such a fine writer (new to me) that it offers the satisfaction that comes when experience is shaped into a beautifully made work of literary art.
