Next Life Might Be Kinder

Next Life Might Be Kinder - Howard Norman I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads. Thank you Houghton Mifflin Harcourt!

Beautiful. Haunting. Will be reading again; joining my top 15 adult books, post 1920. It has books, and writing, and a ghost, and dancing, and mystery, and murder, and a cat, and the ocean, and, Victorian references, and UK references, and movie making, and... Even the jumps around in time I don't mind, and that's saying something!

Fan for life now.
