Affliction – Russell Banks

What a great read this is! A violent, childhood-brutalised man, fumes in an American, snow-covered, rural town. Superb.

At the end of last year I read another of Russell Banks’s novels, Lost Memory of Skin, which I described as a fantastic novel about a young sex offender in America.

Clearly a writer I should read more of.

Have your say!
