If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things

If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things - Jon McGregor This is an unforgettable book, much for the lyrical and poignant way it is written as anything. I love to read this kind of literary fiction and the author has a rare talent for making the ordinary extraordinary; the small everyday events becoming charged with an electric significance due to a tragic event, the details of which don't become apparent until near the end. This lends it a pace while the exact everyday actions of the street's residents keep that pace measured and steady, leading to a satisfying and nail-biting climax. Occasionally I got confused between a couple of the characters but it didn't spoil my overall enjoyment.
