My Revolutions Reviews
"Political fiction sometimes works best when it is less greedy for history, like Alan Hollinghurst's The Line Of Beauty and David Peace's GB84, with their teeming microscope slides of Thatcherite and anti-Thatcherite life at a particular stage of the 80s. And sometimes it works best when the story and its moral are kept slightly opaque, as in Joan Didion's poker-faced and whispering political novels, rather than crisply spelled out, as they tend to be here." - The Guardian.
