Life is Made up of Moments,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Colour of Memory (Paperback)
Although described as life in South London in the Eighties, this novel could equally describe inner city life today. It is written as a series of snapshot experiences of the narrator's life around Brixton. One could almost imagine this book as a series of photographs. That, I guess, is a sign of good writing. This novel is a straightforward, entertaining read. Don't expect anything deep or profound. It shows how life is made up of little moments which we are often blind to, and are often quite beautiful in their spontaneity and simplicity. It has certainly helped to open my eyes to the unexpected beauty of everyday life in London if you look for it.
