The Words

Summer is here and so are our favorite books of the month – to devour on a digital detox in the garden, by the pool, on the beach or camping in a field
Book of the month


By Lucy Ellmann

(Galley Beggar Press, £14.99) Lucy Ellmann’s one-sentence, 1,040-page epic is beyond excellent. Told in a breathless rush of vivid, vibrant words, it follows the seemingly random thoughts of an harassed Ohio housewife as she bakes her way through the days. She worries about her dead parents, weapons of mass destruction, school shootings and the future of her children and the planet, as she watches nature out the window and makes pastry lattices for cherry pies. She also takes well-aimed potshots at fake news and a Twitterhappy American president, who seems to embody all that is meaningless about contemporary society.
