Pure by Andrew Miller


“Costa winner and rightly so. I recommend reading this historical novel.
The city graveyard of Paris is overflowing with corpses and had to be shut, it rests and it stinks.
Young engineer Jean Baptiste is given his first job after a surreal interview at Versailles to remove it, contents, church, everything.
This is a multi layered masterpiece and perfect for any reading group who, like ours will discuss late into the night.

Score 8/10
