November Meetup [Love]- Sarah Waters: The Night Watch (2006)

The winner of November's poll is... Sarah Waters: The Night Watch (2006)

In a bold leap from the Victorian lesbiana of Waters's previous hit novels, The Night Watch, told backwards from 1947 to 1941, traces the lives of its four lost characters as they pick their way back through the rubble and ruined lives of austerity Britain to the danger of the Blitz. With Pinter's Betrayal as a template, The Night Watch records four love stories from sorry endings to romantic beginnings. And while war-ravaged London — immaculately rendered in both atmosphere and detail — provides a dramatic backcloth, Waters' is most interested in the inner conflict of her characters' hearts.

Happy reading!
