Even the dogs by Jon McGregor

even the dogsA haunting, humane and deeply powerful read from Jon McGregor. The central characters know one another because of their shared alcohol and heroin addictions and their lives in an unidentified English city.

The book’s structure (and even the nature of the narrators themselves) is free-floating, unmoored in time and showing us the same scenes from many different angles.

It’s a deeply affecting read, managing to lead the reader gently to new viewpoints and new ideas without either hectoring or preaching. I predict this will make my ‘reads of the year’ round-up.
