Hangover Square

It's about an unemployed, sociopathic alcoholic, in unrequited love with a heartless bitch who uses him, set in the late 30s as the country is just about to go to war. Beautiful writing but painful to read, it's unutterably depressing, hopeless and despairing. It's like he takes a knife, digs it into you and then keeps twisting it a little bit deeper. It's a good book but... Do not recommend, (unless you need something to read in the bath whilst opening your wrists.)

8 rusty razorblades out of 10.
