What to Read Now: Vol CII

In News by Patrick PowerLeave a Comment

by Benjamin Myers

A truly epic novel about Durham Cathedral, Cuddy spans over 1000 years. Beginning with the monks bearing St Cuthbert (Cuddy) to his final resting place, and bringing us to the present day, where a labourer is repairing the cathedral that was built in that spot. Each of the four parts is self-contained but has connections to what came before it and what comes after. Already one of our favourite books of the year.
