Our library got new copies of this Penelope Lively book first published in the Thatcher years. It follows architect Matthew Halland as he goes about business and spends Saturdays with daughter Jane and contemplates his life and London’s history.

A must read for Anglophiles and Lively fans. Beautiful ode to a city and its inhabitants through time. I was reminded of two other London-based books with similar interior monologues: Virginia Woolf’s 'Mrs. Dalloway' and Ian McEwan’s 'Saturday.' Very good.
