This review is from: The World My Wilderness (Paperback)
The World my Wilderness is a surprising, brutal but beautiful book set in the aftermath of the Second World War. The characters are fully -realized and the settings, particularly the ruins of London after the Blitz, are wonderful and terrifying. Macaulay writes with an incisive lack of sentimentality but with a real undertsanding of the human condition, love and hate. This would make a good companion read to Muriel Saprk's London books: The Bachelors, A far cry from Kensington etc. I also recommend Macaulay's book 'Towers of Trebizond' one of the best novels ever ( IMHO).
