Possibly the best book I've read? But not for everyone.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lanark (Canons) (The Canons) (Paperback)
There aren't enough superlatives for this novel. I've loaned it to a handful of people and everyone agrees that it's astounding writing, however 2 of those people struggled to finish it because the content is almost unremittingly brutal, bleak and disturbing. So if you want the art you consume to be affirming and heartwarming, perhaps choose something else! But if you think, like me, that the best books, films and music challenge and discomfort you, then order it right away!
