10:35 Book review - Milkman by Anna Burns

Carole Beu from the Women's Bookshop reviews Milkman by Anna Burns, which is published by Faber & Faber.

Irish writer Anna Burns leads us down a slippery path of innuendo, hearsay, silence & deliberate 'not- seeing', to a dark place of prejudice, intimidation & life-threatening danger. Often funny; utterly compelling"
