The Woman Upstairs by Claire Messud
Anne’s first review of the year
really liked it
The Woman Upstairs is a fine novel about envy and creativity, friendship and jealousy, about how difficult life is when there’s no-one who thinks you’re special. It’s about the pull of fantasy versus making a good life from the cards you are dealt.

Anne’s last review of the year
it was ok
Anyway, as the narrator of this novel would say after several pages of deviation from the “plot”, there’s a fascinating account of corruption, blackmail and profiteering during Franco’s Spain buried within the waffle. I’m fascinated that this writer is held in such esteem.
