Apart from being an excuse to show off the stunning work of art that is the new cover to A Month in the Country by J.L. Carr I can also tell you what a fine novel it is.
It was a recent book club choice by Simon on Hear… Read This! And I really surprised myself by for getting so absorbed in something that looks so short and for welling-up during a key scene at the end.
If you get chance read it and see what you think, especially if yours has this new cover.
