This Wide NightThis Wide Night by Sarvat Hasin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A vivid, swirling narrative that feels both epic and intimate. Jimmy is deftly drawn, acting as a vessel for our experiences of the Malik sisters, as well as being flesh, blood and flaws. Political, clever, achingly tender and bitingly fierce in its portrayal of love, loneliness, and the struggle for connection in families and cities, THIS WIDE NIGHT takes flight into well-judged magical realism for a gorgeous and haunting ending. One of my favourite reads of 2016.
